Thin Air

THIN AIR

“Thin Air” is a whimsical tale chronicling the final days of Hector. Seated in a wheelchair parked on the roof of his apartment building, Hector flings fishing lines into the cold heights of New York City. He bids his time for the impossible catch, whilst reality bites in the form of Cecilia, his home-care aide.

“Thin Air” is not simply an elegy to solitude. Sometimes the quieter one’s world is, the harder one dreams and sometimes the universe hears you.

FONZI

A world-within-world story, "Fonzi" is the tale of a movie character who, like Pinocchio, wants to be a real person.

10 Miutes Later

10 MINUTES LATER

Determinism is the philosophical doctrine which claims that every physical event, including human cognition and action, is causally determined by an unbroken chain of prior occurrences.

Based on this theory, 10 Minutes Later is a short film that tells the tale of 10 characters – of their habits; quirks and relations. And most importantly, their interweaving lives. This film is a medley of characters.

It is a slice, a dice, a mishmash of life.
