when external forces act on us, we retreat.
we create a mental space.
there, we can play.
A man is in the mountains where he is singing along to his favourite songs. A woman is dancing in a field. She is playing with the rain and the wind. A young man goes to the woods to destroy something only he can see.
Safe Place is an atmospheric music piece set into an immersive visual experience. With the protagonists’ actions in nature and abstract elements, the film is a continuous flow of introspection. The landscapes suggest emotional streams of our inner world.The people are showing themselves in their playful, yet emotionally charged state of mind.They interact with nature by means of private rituals to release their hidden selves.
Safe Place is an exploration into the lurking depths of our minds aiming to push the spectator into their own inner hidden places.
