Holy Innocents’ High School
‘Enclosed’ is an abstract film that depicts the moment when one is suddenly given an isolation order. It revolves around an individual who is “trapped” within her own physical and mental boundaries. The use of textures and movement forms the idea of struggle in the beginning, where everything is not what it seems. There is a lot of tension and bending, to create a sense of confusion. Distorted images of familiar objects and the sound of time ticking in the background depicted time passing by. Sounds of her children had later triggered her state of mind to what is happening in reality. The short-film, hopes to bring about the idea of introspectiveness being in an enclosed space and overcoming challenges with hope and sometimes sacrifice.
