"Inspired by the concept of Sufism of a black dot that is believed to exist in every human being’s heart, “Süveydâ” tells the story of an ever-shifting character in search of their meaning. A fall causes our character to face the disjointedness of the other human beings around them and together they clump into a collective Sisyphean rock rolling uphill, only to fall back again and to disintegrate.
The film is intended to be experienced in a cave, with visitors using handmade beeswax candles for a ritualistic and immersive viewing experience."
