A Feature film by Illum Jacobi

Produced by La Fabrica Nocturna Cinéma

Production year : 2020


    Rampant debts and a significant midlife crisis send philosopher Edmund Burke (Antony Langdon) fleeing from London to embark on an expedition through the French Alps. He brings along a servant on loan from his brother's plantation in the West Indies, a young indigenous woman named Awak (Nathalia Acevedo) Together they set out to discover the sublime in this eighteenth-century road movie. Ill-equipped for the outdoor life, Burke whinges the days away while Awak carries all their supplies and makes sure his face is perpetually powdered. Will Burke find a fitting subject for his philosophical inquiry in the immensity of Mother Nature's beauty ? Or will the natural world become his master in the end?
