This experimental short film fuses live action footage shot on location in Egypt, computer-generated digital effects and the words of the poem “Ozymandias” by Percy Bysshe Shelley to convey the message that when we betray ourselves and our cultural past, we are in danger of destroying our own identity. This film was funded by an IdeasTap Ideas Fund Innovators Award.
