In "Wash Over", I explore the contrast of dependency, navigating the fine line between exploitation and the empowering force of support and connection. The narrative follows an independent woman gradually giving in to her unconscious longing to be seen and heard. This experience is driven by tender interactions, both fictional and real, with the island’s inhabitants. I aim to approach filmmaking with an emphasis on attention—dedicating time to connect with the island and its people to intricately weave their stories into the character’s journey.
