Are You There?

This essay film explores the filmmaker's own memory through the different realms, narratives, and images young people experience during moments of absence.

This essay film explores the filmmaker's own memory through the different realms, narratives, and images young people experience during moments of absence. Absences are often scary and hard to live with, but they also harbour a great secret, a world of wonder. The mysterious not-being-there that dwells at the bottom of our very existence could just as much evoke a sense of belonging as it could cause feelings of great fear. What are we, beyond our bodies? Where does the additional come from?
