Zohar Dvir of the Royal College of Art describes her student film Mercury & # 39; s Retrograde as "an inner dialogue about the search for answers that is presented in a funny and lighthearted way and hides a deeper tragic truth of our generation".
Zohar Dvir: “In an overwhelming and chaotic world, the only way to live it seems to be to separate us emotionally.
“We are lost, detached and have replaced our intuition and inner truth with external sources that give us meaning and order: Do you have an anxiety attack? This is likely because Mercury is retrograde. Afraid of leaving your home and catching coronavirus? That's because your moon has cancer.
“Tarot readings, psychics, acupuncture, rituals – there are so many places we can go when we are looking for answers. We have reached the point where we can no longer make decisions and no longer trust ourselves. "
