“It is so easy to believe that I’m made entirely of empty space. Loneliness is familiar – it’s blue & flushed, like remembering. It’s a mother tongue. It comes so easily to me. I disappear into myself & 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 written by & starring Topaz Winters. 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.
