An Apparition | Experimental
This film showcases the implications and the effects of lockdown. The coronavirus pandemic has made social distancing essential in waging a victorious battle against it. Consequently, the Indian national lockdown is intrinsic to fighting it, even though there still might be people indifferent to it. The short film wants to draw attention to the same concern, and how not taking our quarantine seriously might lead to disastrous results. It chooses the metaphor of an inconsequential insect to communicate the same. by using cockroaches as projections of humans and their actions.
