Covering the limits of this planet a la Herzog, celebrated filmmaker Iva Radivojevic has been working on this multi-character multi-storied docu project for half a decade now. Alpeh has benefitted from support funds from the top organizations including Sundance Institute Documentary Film Program and she was the recipient of the 2017 Sundance Art of Non Fiction Fellowship. Supported by Cinereach, this could easily land at fests such as Rotterdam or Locarno.
Gist: Aleph is a mysterious point (an opening) suspended in space and time that contains the entire universe. It’s hidden in a splintered labyrinth where ten characters play a game of magic. Their collected thoughts serve as pieces of a puzzle that connect the labyrinth and lead to Aleph.
Production Co./Producers: Iva Radivojevic, Madeleine Molyneaux, Vilka Alfier.
