Synopsis

Haunted by her memories, a seamstress comes to terms with her lonely condition.

Director's Statement

Memories and absences. An early attempt at using the story as an excuse to explore complex ideas. In Seamstress, the story emerges from the character, resonating with Albert Camus's ideas from The Myth of Sisyphus: the human need to attribute meaning to life and the silence of the universe in response.
