While there may be many different paths that can lead to a mountaintop, there usually is only one good way to reveal and nurture a true sense of self. Indeed, mountain climbing is as much about the outer landscape - rocks, trees, streams and sky - as it is about the climber’s inner landscape - doubts, fears, hopes and joys. Inspired by UMFF 2018’s visually-contrasted official poster, and influenced by Dutch graphic artist M.C. Escher’s work on infinity and hyperbolic geometry (particularly his famous lithographies of endless, impossible stairs), the main trailer features a lone climber who finds himself sharing the trail with multiple versions of himself. From rather naturalistic at first, the space becomes more and more abstract; the mountain reduces to a few boulders until the climber eventually stands atop a single rock. From afar, even a summit, after all, becomes a mere point on the horizon.
