An abstract travelogue around the skylines of cities I have not been to. These are dystopian virtual travels from São Paulo and Dubai to Dhaka and beyond.

Imbued Life is a film about a young woman’s connection with the life force of nature. She uses her talent for taxidermy to “restore” the animals to their natural habitat.

Her obsession drives her to seek the explanation of the connection she feels, haunting her dreams, as well as her waking moments.
