SYMBIOTIC - Short Film (2018)

You're in the park and want to sit on a bench to relax and enjoy a beautiful day. However, all benches are occupied, each by one person. Which bench would you choose to sit on? With whom would you quietly share a moment on a public bench? Would he/she share it with you? How much bias, conscious and unconscious, can fit on a park bench? At the end of the day, is the person sitting next to us really who we think he is? Symbiotic is a silent short film about voluntary and involuntary racism and bigotry unfolding over the course of a day on a simple park bench.
