Saeculum

Experimental Film United Kingdom 2021 OV
By: Mahenderpal Sorya

SAECULUM (2021) is an experimental short that revolves around the filmmaker’s father who constructs a bird house using scrap material during the 2020 lockdowns. Simultaneously, the filmmaker documents this process through the use of clay. These practices become a portal for reflecting on a life’s work in the construction industry, the memories of establishing a new home in a foreign country and the common ground found between father and son through the practice of making.
