24 Ott “UnExposed” by Vahid Keshavarz
“UnExposed” explores the themes of depression, loss and memories. Every frail crevice is dangerously near to the rupture in the soul of the girl we follow. The director depicts intimate spaces, with a delicate cinematography, to express the feelings of the character: in this way everything becomes a reflection of her life. These near to white places manage to create an atmosphere of solitude and sadness, perfectly showed through the movie, with delicate moments of weakness. The first shot immediately throws us into the private life of this woman and the scene does not lack tension: it is impossible not to feel the need to discover everything about this woman, to understand her, even to help her. Perhaps this is precisely the importance of a film about depression: to allow millions of people to understand this subtle disease.
While the short goes on, narrated like a secret, like a confidence, a small universe opens up for the protagonist. It’s a kind of a strange hope, a moment of suspension between sadness and desolation. Nobody really disappears, everybody leaves traces of the love shared on earth.
Excellent interpretation of the actress, guided by a delicate direction and powerful editing.
