Inspired by the famous “Ode to the West Wind”, written by Percy Bysshe Shelley and published in 1820 by Charles in London, HUMAN O.A.K. is the story of a new type of humanity. The story of a child who, in the time of a sunset, becomes a girl, forced to quickly leave behind the life she had, before everything changed, the memory of her mother with whom she used to play and their poems that now sound like an omen. In an abstract, melancholic present, drenched in nature, this little girl continues her journey until she reaches a large oak tree. There, among books hung to mature, she meets another child, a little boy. Maybe they already knew each other. Among visions of a recent past, memories and nature, life is renewed for all humanity. The film is dedicated to the 200th anniversary of “Ode to the West Wind”. (This is the only international co-production that happened between Europe & India during Covid-19 lockdown)
