Abstract: 

"Waves" is a short narrative film with a duration of 14 minutes, shot on 16mm film. It shows a child and her young mother struggling to take care of one another in the small bedroom they share. Years later, the daughter returns to find solace in the embrace of a childhood friend. The "Installation of film footage and recorded sound" is a response to some of the questions raised through the making of the short film. Through it, I am reinterpreting the material recorded during the production of "Waves" beyond the restrictions of montage. Using broad strokes, I am looking to see where narrative falls apart and what survives its shattered logic.
