Apologia v7 synopsis

tumblr_o4erioHixI1tyaqvpo1_1280
It all starts by looking down in deep waters and we see the title shining on the murky water. All of a sudden a white figure comes towards, us, towards the surface and comes out of the water. It is Jake. He swims to the shore where Gamma a little skinny girl is waiting. Jake comes out of the water but has no contact with Gamma, is like they are both unknown to eachother. And then we see trees moving in the wind, and big water flowing, and clouds and fog moving. In a dark room Otte is washing her paralyzed mother Imola. Near the bed on a simple chair there is the Professor, the confessor and adviser of Otte. The professor talks with Otte about living alone, and why it is impossible form Ottes body and mind. She wants to lose herself into another.
In the same night, in another part of town, Jake is working on 3 big monitors, at his research desk. Looking for something, trying to entangle an immense theoretical and scientific discovery. He thinks, he is bored, He works with passion. He lies on the floor. He throws papers away. In a dark corner of the room very quietly is Gamma. She ask Jake about why is she there, and they talk about the difference between object and vibrant presence. About a third existence.
Jake is sleeping and a computer message is waking him up and scares him. It is his friend Phil, also a scientist, that confirms him that his findings about a Global Magnetic Shift and thus physical laws in continuous change are correct. Phil invites Jake to come to their lab and work on it. Phil also confirms that the Shift is changing people’s behaviors and makes them weirder and more violent. Jake responds that he needs to save someone first, then he will go to them.
Jake goes to Otte’s home where she very hardly lets him in. She thought he was dead. She was just preparing herself something very raw and bloody thing to eat. He doesn’t want. They talk about their love for each other and how they keep it hidden. And how each one wants to become the other. Jake is let to stay only for one night. Read more… »

Apologia Becomes

Apologia‬ becomes more and more a multidimensional multi temporal multi existential story, about a mystical togetherness that is somehow broken and people have broken pieces in one another, and continuities and they remember themselves in others and become another and find being caught in changed times and bodies and minds.

Recently I have found out ‪#‎Apologia‬ to be an ‪#‎existentialist‬ project.
*a sense of disorientation and confusion in the face of an apparently meaningless or absurd world
*existence precedes essence
*man first of all exists, encounters himself, surges up in the world—and defines himself afterwards
*rationality as a mechanism humans use to counter their existential anxiety

Apologia I

Apologia is a series of small films based on a character named Preuss/Jake that decides to renounces his soul and gets an operation to do so. After waking up in an abandoned Locks he returns home to see if without soul life is different. If he can see or feel life in another way.
His first change is that he is not hungry anymore. And that he becomes very suspicious about the whole procedure of the Medical Removal of the Soul, because there is no difference.
So he wonders and wants to find out, what is in  the Jar that he has in his possession and in which he was told it is his soul.

The first film is about Jake waking up as the remembrance of Preuss and transforming himself through Otte, a girl that saves the waking bodies after the Soul Removal Operation, back into human social form.

The second is about Jake that has his first encounter with Sab, an old and problematic realtionship of his. An encounter that will open all the wounds of his life. In him. And in all the ones that he touched.

The of 7 are still in outline form, and might change at any time. So I will talk about them when I will fully write them.
