SUBMARINE | #PostNarrative
THU-SUN / 19:20-22:40
A rabbit goes on an exploration on a submarine, which accidentally enters the drainpipe of a shower booth in a house. In search of bright light, it peers through a periscope above the surface of the water, to be confronted by a pair of human legs taking a shower.
This film portrays an allegorical figure on an ego trip. It is not about any specific public persona but about a human in his/her private life. The intention of this dreamlike narrative was to, gradually yet powerfully, induce in the audience a silent message to be outside of themselves, to de-familiarise and reach self-awareness.
