“It is so easy to believe that I’m made entirely of empty space. Loneliness is familiar – it’s blue and flushed, like remembering. It’s a mother tongue. It comes so easily to me. I disappear into myself and I find solar systems, galaxies. I understand more than I ever could when I’m surrounded by others.”
A film exploring the loveliness in loneliness & the infinite wonder we find when we allow ourselves to bloom into the empty. A soft sense of purpose, how it sings within & around itself: this is so, this is so, this is so.
SUPERNOVA is a short film that I wrote & starred in. It was directed by Ishan Modi, chosen as an official selection for the Newark International Film Festival, Across Asia Youth Film Festival, & Laurie Nelson Film Festival, & shortlisted for the My Rode Reel Film Festival & CINE Golden Eagle Awards. I received the Overall Best Actress award at the Singapore International Student Film Festival for my leading performance.
“[A] softly-glowing, blue-hued body of filmic wonder … poetic filmmaking at its best.” – Kanika Lawton for L’Éphémère Review
“Despite the film being short, I got sucked into it. I seemed to have blinked and it was over … Quick, poetic yet out of this world.” – Rachel Poli
