ABOUT THE FILM
“We are homesick most for the places we have never known” – Carson McCullers
Conceived and created by the Virginia-based studio Mondial, the short film follows an isolated teen (Zach Rand) in and out of his subconscious, navigating his own feelings of intense yearning and unappeased desire. Isolation’s effect on the heart and mind can sometimes bring about a type of nostalgia in reverse: a fondness for a reality we’ve not yet experienced. The concept serves as an offering to the soundtrack’s plea: how can love can grow from pain?
