With the bleak future during the mid-2020s, it was a time where all of us shared the same fears and questions, this short is an effort to portray the emptiness and the vague strand of hope we all shared.
Ekanta is the visual storytelling of the mutual loneliness that the whole globe shared as everybody was confined indoors. The artist aims to provide an open perspective film depicting the solitude of the once busy streets and the dilemma of the empty vicinity around.
