A Field of Islands

A dream-like short about the desire to find ‘negative islands’ from which the world might be unmade. Nisha Ramayya plays ‘S’, who circles between lime kiln tunnels, observation decks high above a future city, and the London clubbing scene, trying to find a re-beginning, or a good way through this field of islands and into a world beyond.
