This short film was all filmed behind Alma Karvat-Shemesh’s (The dancer) childhood home in Herzliya. It is a deep and twined forest that up until the COVID-19 pandemic, she had never gotten to know. what was once in her past a glimpse of color from her living room window, turned out to be a rich and colored landscape in her present. Within this forest, compositions, sounds and metaphors started to arise, all connecting with each other, slowly and carefully, to reach a new understanding: the ability to create is sometimes closer than you think. 

Sepia is an improvisation tied between dance, music and video. All three were not preconceived to a concrete theme or story but made their way into the arms of each other.

When in quarantine, a subject has only two options, to look inside or to look outside. When you get the possibility to look outside, you can perhaps rediscover your surroundings with a new perspective.
