MURTAD – DOCUMENTARY FILM
Mortal is a poetic documentary featuring the collective stories of ex-Muslims in Singapore regarding internal struggles with identity, family and society.
This is a collaborative project with the graduating students from Puttnam School of Film, LASALLE College of the Arts, (BA)Hons. My task as a graphic designer was to design the film poster as well as the press kit.

This poster amplifies the struggle and pain that the characters are feeling through the design of the blurry and distorted effect of the face, as they feel disconnected when they reveal their true self identity to others. When I was shooting images of the character, the art direction I was going for was to have the motion blur effect because in the film, he mentions that he wants to disappear and runaway.
