ÀPEIRON I Italy, 01:04:22 I Director: Sandro Bocci I Art & Experimental PG13 I WEBSITE
What is Time? Àpeiron (Undefined) is a contemplation of time, a concept hard to define with words which elude casual investigation about its very nature. In a progression of visual speculations the viewer experiences the unfolding of time from outside time, a place of the undefined. The film unfolds through a subjective audio-visual path, beginning from abstraction, and progressively arrives to a more human perspective of the world, for then returning back to abstraction in a cyclical journey. The cycle is a direct inspiration from an ancient philosopher, Anaximander, whose idea named the film. The infinite dimensions on the topic of time find a convergence within the imagery of poetic language. The sequences don’t bound the viewer to a linear narration. Instead it leaves space to a plentiful of interpretations resulting from a collage of memories, experiences and visual abstractions.
Àpeiron is a visual storytelling of handcrafted footage, microscopy, astrophotography, naturalistic sequences and subjective points of view that takes the viewer from an imaginary plane to a real one.
