BEYOND is the aesthetic response to one of humankind’s current strategies to handle a global pandemic. Removing oneself from civilization and detaching from whatever does not serve us anymore. Exploring new truths and roads to inner peace seems to be the only way to rise above collective anxiety. The film presents a number of absurd and surreal tableaus – a human beings’ awkward attempts of connecting with nature to only find herself more alienated than before. The lack of movement, the abstract non-moving dance, creates an interaction between inner and external motions. Like someone said: When you cannot go outside – go inside.
