LIVING THE DREAM (2020)
written and directed by reeta varpama
a 5-minute short film created in the summer of the covid-19 pandemic
an exploration of some of the frustrations of this bizarre system we live in while feeling the desperate pull to connect and re-connect with what we are rapidly losing
end of play, end of day, end of week!
two glorious days to reset, to unwind, to take some time from the daily grind
that is laid on us from birth by the powers that be
a life built on creating profit, maximising, upsizing, forever more, more, more
is this really worth living for?
and even through doubt and struggle
that unwavering dedication to the system pulls you right back in
but not until Monday
Saturday and Sunday in-between
for that great relief
for a moment to breath...
