WINDOWS is an unusual narrative with a series of nine stories, each constructed as an uncut shot, looking through a window. Every scene is a voyeuristic glance into the lives of ordinary people as they struggle with their inner and external conflicts and circumstances. We watch them through the windows of their cars, houses, offices, prisons, and apartments, sometimes at a distance, sometimes painfully close. Windows stands as a metaphor for physical and psychological boundaries, which separates the inside from the outside, the private from the public, the fiction from the reality. The narrative by crossing, meshing, sometimes fore-fronting such constructed borders, reveals the hidden truth and ultimately the existential dilemma of each protagonist.
Windows is an intimate yet disturbing reflection on aspects of the contemporary culture and life in America.
