Synopsis

A young woman constructs a solitary reality by imagining what life would be like after the passing of her parents. Absorbed in the slow process of working alone in the family’s green house, she relives shadow memories of her Cambodian mother and father. The healing ritual of physical labour gradually reveals itself over time. As the plastic roof bears the weight of natural elements, the increasingly precarious weather threatens this new life alone.

Sinopsis

Djevojka konstruira usamljenu stvarnost zamišljajući kakav bi joj život bio nakon smrti roditelja. Uvučena u spori tempo usamljeničkog rada u porodičnom plasteniku, proživljava potisnuta sjećanja na svog kambodžanskog oca i majku. Ritual zacjeljivanja kroz fizički rad se postepeno otkriva. Dok plastični krov nosi breme prirodnih elemenata, sve neizvjesnije vrijeme prijeti ovom novom samačkom životu.

Directors Biography

Allison Chhorn is a Cambodian-Australian film-maker and multidisciplinary artist whose work explores themes of migrant displacement, trauma and the repetition of memory. Graduating from UniSA with an Honours degree in Visual Arts, she has since directed numerous short films including “Close Ups”, “Last Time” and the forthcoming “Blind Body”. The docu-fiction hybrid The “Plastic House” is her first solo mid-length film which had its international premiere at Visions du Réel film festival, Switzerland, 2020.

Biografija reditelja

Allison Chhorn je filmska autorica kambodžansko-australskog porijekla, i multidisciplinarna umjetnica koja propituje teme migrantskog lutanja, trauma i repeticije sjećanja.
