SEEKING
A SHORT FILM

A solitary figure reaches for a presence that remains ungraspable,          







           prompting the figure to face his own confinement and slip out of a long bittersweet solitude dealing with loss.









Sahand Mohajer           

Upon entering, the viewer is suspended in an existential poetic world as intimate as a room. This room, this vessel holds many ideas and signifiers integral to my spiritual and philosophical inquiry. These themes include but are not limited to loss and absence, solitude, deferral of grief, limits of knowledge, and seeking of the divine.
