Ennui – a feeling of listlessness and dissatisfaction arising from a lack of occupation or excitement.
This film was an assignment in my course at the National Film School, IADT. We were tasked with creating a 1-3 minute fictional short.
I decided to pursue the idea of why people remain in a job they are so evidently unhappy in – why do some people sacrifice their happiness in spite of decent pay? In the face of misery, why do some willingly suffer? The film does not contain any dialogue and relies on imagery to propel these messages and its story.
