Inspired by a true life, personal experience of heart break, Fisayo Osilaja takes us on a roller coaster journey on the excitement of finding love, the euphoria of being in love, the feeling of betrayal by the one you love, the pain of losing the one you thought loved you and finally, finding closure in your lost love. She expresses these stages using colours, letting us into her mind to emotionally connect with how she felt during her own experience which she simply described as broken.
Reaching out to other people all over the world who might have gone through/are still going through similar experiences, she aims to express that every stage of losing love and recovering from it is essential to shaping better versions of one’s self. All this she delicately puts together to create the beautiful short film, ROUGE.
