Hi! We are a group of BA Filmmaking students and for our final graduation project we are making an experimental film that aims to explore an artist's perception of life and death through her last video series. 

An audio visual exploration - filmed both digitally and on 16mm, depicts the last few days of Maya's life. Set in her gallery, we witness her struggle with the decline in her mental state, alongside extracts from her diary.  We will be taken in and out of the space she has created by experimental tableaus that depict her mental disarray and how she views the world around her.
