Shrouds Have No Pockets

Nordic Shorts, Finland 2021, 29 Min., fin. OV, engl. st

Via app, test subject "N.N." enters a reality in which immortality is made possible by time travel. Flashes of POVs make tangible the steady decline of his consciousness, which experiences time only as a senseless succession of fragments. The routine and the surreal (in grotesque 3-D animations) alternate; as a counterpoint, an off-screen voice objectively explains the progress of the study.
