Synopsis

Black-and-white meditation on the tension between scientific knowledge and religious belief.
A young scientist, man of reason, searches for his childhood feelings, his forgotten ability to believe, when his rabbi father passes away.


Review

We loved this short, the filmmaker is showing great understanding of the use of sound as well as image here. Creating a feeling of vast space, yet also intimacy in a portrait of the mind of a thoughtful man. It would be fascinating to see this filmmaker produce something with a more traditional narrative, we wonder how she would create scenes of dialogue. Great work.
