Excerpt of the film
Short film/music piece about how paranoia spreads like a virus.
Motor is a short film/music piece about how paranoia spreads like a virus. We follow the secretive behaviour of a group of seven inhabitants of an apartment building. Inside sadness seeps through the walls, while outside, fear escalates like burning flames.
