Sina Igme at Gani
SINA IGME AT GANI moves towards remembering and projecting childhood in film. It comes close to the world of Igme and Gani where things are quiet, colorful, and simple. Even pain is static, pulled in by their feelings of isolation, but gently eased away by their friendship. The conflict of the narrative arises when the system of oppression threatens their world that is each other.
