The Primordial Impasse (2022)

 

SYNOPSIS

 

« Why be afraid of the nothing in store for us

when it is no different from the one which preceded us? »

A man shares his thoughts on the condition preceding our birth.

A handful of fortuitous auditors are ephemerally linked by the

synchronous experience of listening to this reflexive message.

The project is based on the writings of philosopher Emil Cioran.
