During a country’s independence celebrations, a time capsule containing totemic objects is lovingly prepared for installation, bearing gifts to grace a future time. Meanwhile, an old time capsule from the last era is exhumed, revealing enigmatic objects from the past. Against this backdrop, a filmmaker traverses her country, filming scenes and rituals for her personal archive. Using wide framing and long stately takes, everyday familiar moments are imbued with a mysterious feel. Suddenly, the past, present and future collide, and we are not as clear as to where we are.
