Inside Outside

A short video about disappearing.
A documentary about getting up and having a shower.
A small film about inside and outside, her world and the world.
An excuse to show a lot of beautiful buildings. 

INSIDE OUTSIDE focuses on the architecture of Saint Petersburg’s suburbs and the contrast between private and public space in these areas. These suburbs, mostly built in the beginning of the nineties, are places where the surroundings seem overwhelming; so overwhelming they almost usurp the people in them. In Inside Outside the private and the public collide in image, sound and story.
