Déjà vécu (Latin – 'already lived’) is one of three types of paramnesia, more commonly known as déjà vu. It occurs when a patient feels as though they have already lived or repeated a situation they have just experienced.

The film is designed as an installation view to be played on a continuous loop, outlining the ambiguous nature of the human mind’s ability to recognise previously lived experiences.
