Shot with a 360° panoramic camera but edited into 2D, this film follows three groups of friends as they walk and talk in Peru, Sri Lanka and Taiwan.
Three disparate groups of friends traverse landscapes in Peru, Sri Lanka and Taiwan, eventually converging on a mysterious mountaintop. Their multilingual conversations reveal their routines, fears and desires, and reflect their fragmented yet connected existences in a contemporary global age. The landscapes they move in convey a strong sense of place, but become more indecipherable as the characters cross into each other’s spaces.
Filming with a panoramic 360° camera fitted with eight lenses, Williams edited the footage to fit a regular screen. The camera angles, glitches, vertiginous distortions and contextual wide views create a cinematic experience that rewards the careful viewer with quietly astonishing moments.
