After her husband’s death, Cecile becomes an agoraphobic hoarder, gardening indoors without direct sunlight. She orders worms to grow a rare flower, but the worms create a black hole that absorbs everything she cherishes. With her home unrecognizably empty, she must re-assimilate into society on her own terms.

WWYD (What Would You Do?)

Pixelated glimpse of some of the intimate moments of life. From a panicked search for a missing child, to the remnants of loss and war; this collection of live action, experimental, and animated works poignantly asks, “What would you do?” — Annie Liang & Eseel Borlasa
