Description

ALEPH

 


A Refocus Film Festival Selection

 

"Loosely inspired by Jorge Luis Borges’ short story The Aleph, Iva Radivojevic’s Aleph is an exploration of Borges’ obsession with the infinite. Labyrinthine and dreamlike, the film is a multi-continental travelogue employing the rigor of documentary as well as the cinematic elements of narrative fiction and magic realism. Synthesizing both interviews and scripted content with local actors and performers spanning ten countries and five continents from Greece to Algeria to Nepal, we witness the ways in which our actions, however small, have vast, unforeseeable consequences. Raw, innovative, and intensely familiar, Aleph is an ambitious attempt to visualize the infinite possibilities contained within a human lifetime.
