Gardesh (گردش)

Gardesh, a Farsi word referring to motion and revolution, blends 16mm film, 3D animation, and stop-motion to tell the story of a displaced being, drifting on a spacecraft, searching for a home. Confronted by geodesic orbs, impressions of familial recollections, which guide them towards a conception of self, they are moved by home movies and echoes of their past lives—and must reconcile how they got to where they are, caught between selves.
