O. 2022, single channel, 4K, 12 min.
The short film O. has its starting point in the filmmakers fascination for religious extasis. She asks if the same emotion can be received through making art and if it is possible to deliver that to the viewer. In O. the filmmaker and a group of participants is trying to reach a light trance state of mind through sound and movement lead by the artist and actor Cris af Enehielm.
