From the Film Maker:
As expected after the second coming of Christ, human beings almost annihilate themselves, destroying almost everything – even their memories – through several years of worldwide wars.
Torquemada, the new General Inquisitor, tries to rebuild a government and a society following the ancient Catholic Inquisition system and doctrines. But his memory has also been lost, so he needs to commit heresy in order to remember what happened to God.
My short film aimed to show what an absurd and arbitrary idea it is to hold an ineffable truth, a dogma, interpreting God’s thoughts and wishes. I say absurd because what is truth now might be the greatest falsehood tomorrow: what is a sin might be a virtue.
What is God might even be the devil in another time or for other people, or even for ourselves in different contexts.
A piece inspired by Bartolomé Esteban Murillo, Portrait of Don Justino de Neve, 1665
