The religious existence constructed in four stages. A progression of events. Each scene is allegorical, a puzzle of symbology, from the initial cause to its extinction and finally to its representational aftermath. It is a personal vision of the realization of the confines of religious dogma and their eventual defeat and the realization of residual traces left over after its destruction.
The average shot length is one minute without cut or camera movement. Each is intended to be meticulously analyzed or simply watched without loss of attention. It is a reaction to the quick-cutting, rapid-fire sequences of shots currently the norm. It is an attempt to slow the pace to a noticeable level.
