A teenage girl tries to escape her reality using an Instagram filter. The desire to be free by existing as an image collapsed after losing control over her avatar.
From a distance, Anhar casts family and friends shooting and acting for the movie as fictionalized versions of themselves, exploring and hovering between private and public life in Saudi Arabia.
Anhar is born in 1993 in Jeddah (Saudi Arabia) with a multi-ethnic background (Yemeni and Indonesian). Studied IT at Arab Open University and Le Fresnoy Studio in France. As an autodidact video artist, her work attempts to explore, document, and open new public and private spaces associated with themes such as everyday life, body, and social media.
