How did you make this work:
Manifested result of a creative fever rush, 'Keep' is a story that refused to let itself remain unseen.
Taking form through a series of serendipitous encounters and fortunate circumstances, the film revealed itself to be as much a cathartic endeavour as it is an exploration of form, technique and world building.
