"The Mask", horror short made in mid 2019, seems oddly prescient now


"The Mask", from Garahisarliyin, made sometime in mid 2019, certainly anticipates COVID (5 minutes).

“The Mask”,from Garahisar

A young man (Aden Akyol) with no face wakes up, puts on a mask to look like a real human, and everyone ignores and bumps into him.

It’s as if he does not exist anymore, and lives only in a simulation. But for him a mask would give him an identity, not function as a symbol of vulnerability, 

Perhaps this is his afterlife, after purgatory, for all eternity.
