    Focal Point

    ”Focal Point” is a short film produced by students at Dalarna University in their final year as their thesis film. The aim of the film was to take advantage of the technical equipment at the school but most importantly making a film which all the students could be proud of. In this short film we encounter a young man named Carl who at a wintertime party accidentally falls into an open hole in the ice and begins to drown. During his fight for survival he takes an unexpected journey of self discovery into himself and his memories. Here the film explores if these so called ‘focal points’ is what shapes a human, and if these moments have to be the big dramatic ones, or smaller subtle ones. As the pace picks up and he drifts further from the surface and his memories get infected by the water and the cold he struggles to not loose his identity, and his life. If you were to experience your own memories from the outside, would you make changes to yourself after?
