Eidolon (2020)

16mm | 1.37 | Black and White | Mono Optical | 3:35

Synopsis:

The seer passes beneath branches, crosses fields, observes the quiet corners of creation. Bright and dark take turns showing their faces, a two-sided phantasm, one energy shape-shifting through time. The seer makes note, gleans eidolons.
