What is virtual cinema?


A reflection on human life in all its beauty and cruelty, its splendor and banality.

We wander, dreamlike, gently guided by our Scheherazade-esque narrator. Inconsequential moments take on the same significance as historical events: a couple floats over a war-torn Cologne; on the way to a birthday party, a father stops to tie his daughter’s shoelaces in the pouring rain; teenage girls dance outside a cafe; a defeated army marches to a prisoner-of-war camp.

Simultaneously an ode and a lament, ABOUT ENDLESSNESS presents a kaleidoscope of all that is eternally human, an infinite story of the vulnerability of existence.

REVIEW

“Absurdist humour, global history and abject horror sit side by side, all equally weighted and witnessed.”

Mark Kermode, Observer (UK)
