PARIS DIARIES


short documentary / essay film: 11 min 35 sec, 2019

A young and unsuccessful artist tries to find a theme for her short film in Paris. She gets overwhelmed by too many topics and ends up just recording the process. Paris Diaries depicts the challenges of filmmaking in an absurd and spontaneous fashion that interweaves rough interviews and personal exploration. This hybrid of a documentary and essay film captures tangibly zeitgeist of the city.

The short film is supported by Aalto ARTS Scholarship and La Cité internationale des arts Paris.
