The Invisible Mountain

The Invisible Mountain

24th TDF: Greek Premiere

A hallucinatory portrait of a man traveling from Finland to Greece in search of the utopian summit described in René Daumal’s Mount Analogue (1952) – a fictional mountain floating in the sea. Equal parts road movie, concert film, embodied performance, cinema verité, and hypnagogic reverie, this is a cinema-voyage in which life is the dream of death and transcendence is a very real destination.
