Matti harju, joakim pusenius
Tomorrow was Magnificent
Experimental fiction | 4k | color | 15'25'' | Finland | 2015
We hear the past like a sentimental echo from times when we came together, the future like an answer to our needs, and the present like a silence in which we alone are standing still. Tomorrow was Magnificent was born out of this silence, as an end and a new beginning of nothing – apeiron.
