1978 the 231st Day

Sara Rajaei
Netherlands 2012 / 7’

1978 the 231st Day is dark. Every pixel of the screen is black and only the bright text on the screen cuts through the pervasive darkness. However, the mental images visualizing the story told by an absent narrator are colourful. We listen and ‘see’ people, situations and emotions.
