a short film about the opposing duality of reality, and how opposites are not as different as they seem.
written and directed by David J. Ortiz
with music by Gilberto Jimenez
What defines things as "opposite" is what actually binds them together, forever together under the pretence of being opposite. Split & Splice : The Great Division, is an audiovisual experience filled with symbolic imagery and metaphysical concepts, combined to tell one big story, put together through many smaller stories.
A story of three friends, brought together to converge and experience the foretold "end of the world"; they experience the "great division" which splits their beings into two polar opposites of their own selves in alternate simultaneous realities. One reality filled with the psychic energy of metaphysical nature manifested through the forest of light, to which they are connected psychically, biologically and spiritually. The other reality is in a city in the desert, where humans were able to thrive in the barren desert thanks to technology and the interconnected digital network of information to which they are all connected.
