Trailer for the short documentary Two Seconds After Laughter.

An original intersection of documentary, dance-for-camera, and dream-like fantasy, 'Two Seconds After Laughter' creates a border-jumping dialogue on a universal irony: The heart longs most for the one place to which it can never fully return... home. With a narrative inspired by choreographer Sri Susilowati's experience of leaving Indonesia to become a dancer in America, 'Two Seconds...' is a conversation on the nature of memory; a cry of longing caused by separation; and a fable-like tale of the joy and emotional dislocation experienced by contemporary immigrant people. Weaving stunning cinematography (shot in Java and edited by Cari Ann Shim Sham*), traditional Indonesian dance, postmodern Sundanese music, and an emotionally-potent narrative, the film resonates as a meditation on being alone in a fast-moving transnational world.
