GOGI explores the powerful inheritance of female independence and sisterhood, the discomfort of being lonely and yet the unspoken sense of unison of sisterhood with nature and women. The call of the ocean inspires a longing to be and to move as one organism. Filmed across breath taking Australian landscapes, this poetic short film is carrying a journey of separation and fragility arriving in unison and femininity.
