This film is meant to showcase the power of the fantasy genre. Fantasy worlds are the worlds our species evolved into and our brains are designed to understand them. Magic, gods, meaning in everything we see and do; only through fantasy can we expose the modern predispositions that drive us into skyrocketing rates of anxiety, depression and mental illness. Think of this work as an opening volley in my mission to shine a light on all those things we have lost sight of and through this help everyone reconcile our primordial brains to our vast, super complicated modern world.
