“Heavy, Weightless” is a short film focused around the stream of consciousness writings by the filmmaker, searching for the self within the yearning for love and connection, and the uncertainties of life and beyond.
Written & created by Kyna Marie, featuring Abbie Richards.
Shot on 16mm and Super 8 film, 'Skein' is an experimental short film that explores dualism, the intricacies of identity, and fluid boundaries of the self. The women in the film engage in an expanding and contracting relationship, often confined within their environment, as their movement oscillates between synchronicity and disarray. Performed as a vulnerable dance of symbiosis, the paths of two women continually diverge and reconcile, connecting to and disconnecting from their surroundings and each other.
