AIFF Award Winner:
Best Experimental Short

When two strangers feel isolated in the big city, they soon realise that their imagination is able to bring them anywhere they would like to go, despite all the obstacles of modern society.

Director's Statement

With Living In A Bubble I wanted to explore what we as people and our world have been through in the past months. I dive deeper into the world of isolation and the connection between humans, nature and technology. I also asked myself the question: "If everything falls apart", what is there that keeps us going and the answer is HOPE. As long as there is hope we have the power to leave that desperate place we are in and search for a better future. Who knows maybe something unexpected will happen?
