experimental film

total running time: 4:24 
writer and producer: samina virani
director: gandja monteiro


the film explores movement and the creative process, inspired and propelled by the energy of constant travel. created by gandja monteiro, the film captures seven artists who started off as strangers, and seven cities - some of which they knew - seen in short bursts. landscape flowing into landscape, train platform or sleeping car, sunsets and sunrises, experimental gatherings or silent moments. extracts from samina’s text “the game of shifting mirrors” became the thematic framework for the film, as well as the voiceover. the cities explored were barcelona, paris, berlin, gyoma, bucharest, istanbul and tel aviv.
