Video work



This visually and dramatically compelling short film explores a fleeting yet powerful connection, a fateful encounter with a stranger. Set in a dark cobblestone street in the 1950s, a man looks on a woman in a cafe across the street. The two are strongly attracted to each other; nothing can come between them now. The“ moment of fate” is expressed through chromatically austere imagery and realistic depiction.
