I See You

Abstract

Diamante, M.C.S. (2018). I See You, Unpublished Undergraduate Thesis, University of the Philippines College of Mass Communication.

Loss, longing, and dreams – this experimental film wants to explore the relation of dreams and loss. It aims to translate visually the confusion presented in dreams whenever it blurs the line between dreams and reality.

I See You aims to capture the enigmatic feeling of being awake while being fast asleep. It is a film of irony and mischief. It highlights the loss of a mother and yearning for care but at the same time, illustrates the struggle of wanting to be freed from this entrapment of tragic loss.

Anchored to Psychoanalysis by Sigmund Freud, it tackles the dream as something derived from the external world – personal experience, that these dreams are manifestations of the ‘unconscious’ and the greatest concerns of an individual.
