The world seen through a narrow viewpoint. Restricted. Like a labyrinth. This experimental piece takes the vertical image produced by a cell phone and builds tension through a narrative that comes from the juxtaposition and mismatch of the scenes and the sound track; the video make us feel as if we were being taken on a short adventure inside a fragile sarcophagus, like those moments which occur by chance in our crowded cities.
