Sisak

Kratki film

Režiser: Faraz Arif Ansari

Indija, 2017.

Trajanje: 15 min.

Mnogo se govori o jeziku ljubavi – lepoti, poeziji, složenosti i elokventnosti. Ali šta ako prava romansa počiva između linija, na stranicama i trenucima koji te prolaze? Šta ako jednom naučiš da možeš čitati sve? Potopite se u radost, probajte elokventnost, udišite upletenosti i osetite da se poezija odražava u vazduhu. Ali šta ako samo osetiš a ne radiš ništa drugo?

Sisak

Short film

Director: Faraz Arif Ansari

India, 2017

Duration: 15 min

There’s much talk about the language of love — the beauty, the poesy, the intricacy and the eloquence. But what if the real romance rested between the lines, in pages and moments that pass you by? And what if you learned one day that you could read it all? Soak in the joy, taste the eloquence, breathe in the intricacies and feel the poesy reverberating in the air. But what if you could only sense, only feel and yet do nothing else?
