Lotus by Pascale Simons

Lotus

Over the course of 24 hours within in a bustling city, several people live out their anonymous and lonely lives.

For 24 hours the camera of Pascale Simons passes almost silently across several anonymous lives within our busy and hectic society, and a moving palette of stories about loneliness, both tragic and humorous, begins to form. In these modern times, we have numerous ways to connect with each other through social media, but it is more difficult to make truly meaningful contact. In their pursuit of happiness, the characters in LOTUS attempt to break through these social connection barriers.
