Shayad: A Mystical Journey

By Anikait Malhotra with 6.3

non fiction · Short Films · hindi

The very brief narrative is an endeavor in conjuring a philosophical engagement with the ideas of existence, as well as the human pursuit of forever moving forward. Engulfed in a mist, no matter how uncertain your path might seem, the only way is ahead. For this inexorable movement, simply the knowledge of where you will put your foot next is enough, underlines the narrative.

All of this is explored by using travel, and a drive through misty hills as a metaphor. The final result, an interaction with a single moment in time, then is simply a talking into the camera while driving through hazy, foggy valleys.
