About this submission
“The Pond” comes at an unprecedented time of intense isolation and reflection worldwide, principally motivated by COVID-19. This film is an expression of bittersweet acceptance as it depicts a young girl temporarily escaping her routine, tech-driven life by looking out upon her neighborhood pond.
This film allows viewers to witness the courage required for private meditation. In turn, it prompts viewers to ask what burdens they themselves hope to relinquish as the world slowly returns to normal.
