(THIS FILM WAS PART OF OUR 2023 FESTIVAL LINEUP AND IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE ON THE SLAMDANCE CHANNEL) Nothingness bursts, and lets out something. From a dark, tarry mass beings emerge — genderless, looped and alone in repetitive, aimless motions. Everything changes, when one of them discovers in itself s o m e t h i n g. It extracts a red ball from within itself. Immediately, the ball starts getting bigger, shifting its shape and hypnotising all of the beings. They all unite in an ecstatic, ritualistic dance — because of an idea, a community is formed. The beings lose themselves and are engulfed by the abbys.
