間 (Ma) is an immersive short film created by choreographer Fanny Sage and director Neels Castillon. The film explores the essence of Japanese aesthetic and concept called 間 (Ma) — the pure and essential void between all "things." It has been described as a pause in time, an interval or emptiness in space. '間 (Ma) is the fundamental time and space life needs to grow.'

The film was shot in February 2020 in the cold and pure Icelandic winter.
