Taha Ismail

Collective Unconscious

Premiered by Kaltblut Magazine In a world in turmoil and conflict, multiple strangers come together to experience what it means to be human. Set under the white cliffs of Dover in Kent, UK. The film comes at a time when the world is in crisis – war, refugees, racism, mass conflict and suffering, and so on. The film is about human connection, and the theme is about “coming together”. It features a diverse cast of performers supported by the famous Eleanor Roosevelt Human Rights Declaration speech.
