E_GO; 3 min 13 sec; 35mm
Eric Cheung and Alan Sabir,
“E_GO” is an analysis of the dualistic nature of the ego mind and its role in shaping one's identity and perspective on an individual.” Pulling from Eric’s experiences in dealing with his
own personal struggles in finding his own self-identity and ultimately as a dance artist. This film utilizes mirrors as the main visual representation of the different aspects within ego.
This creates further dialogue on the idea of self-reflection and creates a medium for Eric to find himself in the short film. ** Filmed at Cineworks studio!

Annie is a 24-year-old writer who travels across the country - leaving her boyfriend Luke behind - to visit her her affluent, older, married friend “Kim”. Annie is introduced to Kim’s husband, Carey – a boyish and hospitable product of a prep-school upbringing, and their four-and-a-half-year-old son – Jake, who immediately takes a liking to Annie. As Annie’s informal writer’s retreat unfolds, she becomes increasingly inspired and intrigued by Kim’s charismatic charm and seemingly fluid sexuality.
