About Emptiness / Singapore / 2015 / 10'10 / BW / Stereo / DV
In collaboration with sound designer Ryan Kernoa

About Emptiness is a film about an unbalanced relationship where one character has a desire for closeness and the building of a deeper relationship while the other is putting a distance through excuses and concealment. The constant absence of the latter increases the desire of the first. As the second part of a trilogy that was launched with The Incident in 2012, the film also reflects on the shallowness of modern communication, unfulfilled desires and urban melancholia.
