Labyrinth Guide, 2018

Director & DoP: Yuliya Boyd
Illustration & Animation: Mari Socolova

A poetry film, which portrays the quiet, lonely work of a labyrinth guide, whose profession is without any specialisation and yet questions all other professions. With no recognisable employers, with time as the only reward, the labyrinth guide is a phantom in the performance society. Invisible to surveillance cameras, uncatchable for the authorities. All the more so because the existence of his workplace, the labyrinth, is vehemently denied.
