Sons of Illumination

16 mm, 4:3, 2010, 6 minutes


One man’s attempt to find solitude in the mountains joins him with unknown brethren.
In this imaginary parable elements from islamic mysticism are appropriated as a narrative unfolds; the formation of a religious movement starting out with one individual and growing into a fraternity with distinct ideas.

The mysteries of the universe reveal themselves to the sons of illumination.
