Electrique is a video directed by Sofia Theofilaktidis, edited and animated by Spyros Dahlias. It follows Electra, alone at night in her house, as she is left to confront her fear of the dark. Electricity is her only company, manifesting itself in various forms and colors. Edited from a first person’s point of view who is playing hide and seek, animated lights bring comfort at times and at others, distress.
