Short Synopsis

A young girl, in grief from her grandmother’s death, finds herself distanced from her loss by observing, questioning and analysing herself as a fictional character.

Long Synopsis

In grief from her grandmother’s death, a girl finds herself distanced from her loss, observing herself analytically from a third-person perspective. She reflects on the philosophical questions of what defines her being, and traces her relation to the world from micro to macro spectrums. Immersed in the idea that all her individual qualities are but a mirage maintained by ever-changing complex collisions of inheritances, she accepts the world as a flux of infinite possibilities.

  Introduction     Ada  (2018) is an experimental documentary directed by Christine Margaret. It tells the story of a young girl, in grief from her grandmother’s death, distanced from her loss by observing, questioning and analysing herself as a fictional character.  It is a film between a documentary and fiction. It is a documentary because all footage without the protagonist is unstaged, and most events described in the narration are based upon real events. However the protagonist, Ada, is a fictional character.  The film reveals a person’s self-reflection upon the recurring question: What makes me, me? The topic is explored through the many memories, dreams, imaginations and travels in Ada’s personal life, and her analysis of the possible elements and influences from the outer world that make her who she is.
