(Directed by Paper Doll Militia)
Lena Alani/The Death Character
Warped asks you to stare directly into infinity and embrace the mysteries of Time. Join four quirky characters as they traverse a world of suspended gears, cranks, levers, and ropes that turn like the inner mechanisms of a giant clock. Together, our characters contend with the questions that have intrigued artists, scientists, and philosophers for centuries. How does time move? How do we as humans move through it? Perhaps being alive is a spiraling tumble through the Escher-like folds of each moment, which together comprise the fabric of time. Visually rich, sometimes eerie, and always existentially engaging, Warped asks: Which choices determine what reality we land in?
