"Pure image, full of meaning without the burden of fiction"
- Pedro Almodovar
A striking take on cinema and obsession as told through the tale of a hack horror film director who receives a parcel containing tapes, a super-8mm film, and a key to the apartment of a hermetic acquaintance who claims to reach a mystical state of perception when viewing filmed images.
A disquieting reflection on the rapturous ecstasy of cinephilia and the vampiric nature of addiction in all forms.
