Sibi Sekar

Of Other Spaces

Vidéo | 4k | couleur | 24:0 | Inde | 2021

Through episodes that display a high degree of idiosyncrasy, we follow a stranger who creates an imaginary order which serves to stress his inexistence elsewhere. The film is a personal documentary that represents a constellation of past time and suspended time while attempting to explore the Foucauldian phrase 'a placeless place'.

Sibi Sekar was born on April 29th, 1997 in Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India. Sibi fell in love with cinema at an early age upon viewing the works of artists such as Luis Buñuel and Sergei Parajanov. Sibi began making experimental films and directed a few short films ("Thoughts Out Of Season", “Night Train Light On Track“, “Teal City” and "Representation") while doing his postgraduation in Humanities and Social Sciences. He launched the SSSW banner during the 2020 pandemic and made a few more short films ("On Floating Bodies", "The Tale of the Entry/Exit", "you are, i am" and "Of Other Spaces") under said banner. They have been screened at over thirty festivals across five continents. He usually works on explorative films that are primarily an ascetic representation of resistance and the thematic dispositions of his films concern the symbolic depiction of being, nothingness and the transcendental space.
