II Distance


OSIKI starts at a beach on a parallel universe and ends with a daybreak ride on another planet…

I did this film because I wanted to talk about my friends, the people I love. I decided that their trivial everyday lives have the same extent and intensity as the imaginary projections of their mind, their darkest thoughts, their illusional perception of the world.

Osiki takes place in a city that does not exist in any map. Petros spends his last weekend, a well-confused one, together with his friends. A series of questions arise. What is the realm that Osiki has appeared from? How innocent is young Felizol? Is Fluffy the best dancer? Does Doctor know how to drive? Does Alice really love him?
