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.
