Set in Solitude

Video work [Saudi Arabia]



This is the story of a woman traumatized by events from her past as she lives in a fish bowl. She is ensconced in misery and solitude, and becomes numb from life and reality, until things get shaken up. This film is a surreal and metaphoric representation that many people lead sometimes. We become numb from so many things and emotionally detached, that the simplest jolts of life bring us down.
