“No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it’s not the same river and he’s not the same man.”
Vertex emerges from the idea that in nature everything flows and that nothing lasts forever in the historical world that we inhabit. The only aspect that persists in time and space is a continuous act of transformation, a stable and consecutive flow, an endles movement and change where one element overrides the other. Today, we are here but we know that “tomorrow” we won’t be, but “others” will be in our stead.
The narrative is temporally organized around the rotation of the Earth and presents typical elements of the flora and fauna of the Iberian Peninsula that invite you to admire the beauty of nature and its diversity. Through an intimate and contemplative look is intended to incite the viewer to reflect on the continuos and inevitable flow of life.
Note: Vertex is a very recent production of Fronteira Filmes, as such it cant be exhibited online until it has finished it’s festival cycle.
