EPISODE 3 + 4

HOMUNCULUS

BLISSFUL DREAMS OF FUTURE HAPPINESS 

The homunculus is the perfect creation of a human personality. No wonder, innumerable questions arise; the biggest at the front: why all this?

The third and fourth episodes of Secret Wilds is an experimental compilation of various short film projects by The Astroknight. Among other things, it bears the title of his first work and combines three separate phases of a self-knowledge process. We fathom various emotions and the empiricism of the human individual. We get to know love and loss, both; deprivation and rebellion and blind acceptance. In the second part, in Necromancer manner, we ask ourselves the question of the being itself and its salvation.

Parts of the episode were previously intended for a music video, other excerpts were works for the art college. This "director's cut" was finally rounded off with additional scenes in a new room over the course of around 8-10 years.
