The present is an animal that lives in my stomach
“Where is God?,” one asks. But to find him one must align oneself with time, reject arithmetic, celebrate the absurd. “Where is God?” There is no definitive answer. God does not have past or future; he has present, infinitely. Which is why one should ask, repeatedly ask: where is God now?” The Present is an Animal that Lives in my Stomach is an experimental short film that contemplates time and reflects on futile and fundamental questions of human existence. It is the result of an artistic research on transcreation from literature into the audiovisual language. The film was entirely made from archival footage.
