ABOUT THE FILM
Present day. Sarah is a single mother who has just lost her daughter Amelia. Overwhelmed by her need to reconcile with her daughter's suicide, Sarah sets out to recreate and reconnect with her late daughter via virtual reality at Monet's - a spa-like VR facility that helps people rebuild the dead. She slowly becomes addicted to the experience and finds her relationship with her other living child, Danny, worsening in reality.
WHY MAKE THE FILM?
"Last year, a friend of mine committed suicide. I wanted to explore the psychology behind suicide survivors and how they deal with the suicide of a loved one. I wanted to start a conversation about the unanticipated consequences resulting from our use of and reliance on technology. This film reimagines the way we love, perceive things, deal with things, and how these attributes are affected and influenced by the integration of technology in our lives. If we are happy doing what we do, even if what we're doing may hurt someone, is it wrong?"
- Ansen Goh, Director of Six Feet Above
We are final year film majors from Nanyang Technological University of Singapore, School of Art, Design & Media.
Sarah spends a lot of time at the VR facility to meet with her daughter Amelia. Bulk of our resources went to building an environment that would allow for a disturbingly therapeutic experience. We wanted to create a place where the living can meet the dead; where the present can interact with an alternate reality.
