The Secret Life of Objects

A man trapped in a nightmarish dimension, a space between fantasy and reality, a space of disorientation and confusion, welcome to the spiral.

Film notes

The film tries to explore the dynamics of male desire in the postmodern world replete with objects and it's inherent relationship with fantasy. In constructing our fantasy version of reality we establish co-ordinates for our desire, we situate ourselves and the object of our desire in a popular accessible context, but at the heart of desire is a realization of it's transcience and the object of our desire to be contingent, to be only a screen of our narcisstic projections, just like the filmic image.
