"Unwanted Load" marks my directorial debut at The Feirstein Graduate School of Cinema, and it holds a special place in my heart. As an MOS (without synchronized sound) film, it presented unique challenges, compelling me to push the boundaries of visual storytelling. With just two words of dialogue, I aimed to create a narrative that delves into the socio-economic divide, exploring themes of class, identity struggle, and the complexities that arise from them.
This film serves as a thought-provoking commentary on societal disparities, shedding light on the often-unseen struggles individuals from different social backgrounds face. Through the lens of our characters, we examine the profound impact of societal expectations and the relentless pursuit of identity in a world marked by inequality.
Incorporating voyeuristic elements, I wanted the film to invite viewers to question their perceptions and biases, prompting introspection on the nature of human connection and empathy. Through "Unwanted Load," I hope to challenge perceptions, provoke thought, and inspire action toward a more inclusive and equitable world.
