The Book of Vision

The Book of Vision

Greek premiere

Eva, a brilliant doctor who has devoted herself to the study of medicine’s history, discovers a manuscript written by an 18th-century physician, who recorded the dreams, fears, and thoughts of nearly 1,800 patients. Immersed in their tales and visions, Eva embarks on a journey of self-revelation that defies time boundaries, rational laws, and even death. A transcendental meditation (evoking the cinematic universe of executive producer, Terence Malick) on the unfathomable mysteries of both femininity and the human body.
