Curtains In My Mind is a short film that aims to introduce metaphysical concepts about the nature of reality and the power of ideas and beliefs to a mainstream audience. This project is inspired by both Gregg Braden’s writing on the nature of reality as a holographic matrix, the power of belief, and the interconnectedness of all things, as well as Friedrich Kittler’s work on the relationship between hardware, software, and users.
The story of Curtains In My Mind begins with Alan who is feeling run down by life. His friend, Brad, convinces him to visit a hacker to steal money from his stepfather’s bank account. Upon arriving at the hacker’s place, Alan explains that he’s having some difficulties and needs some extra cash to solve his problems. To Alan’s surprise, the hacker has other ideas and tries to show him how, like the restrictions of computer programs, our perceived limitations are actually illusions.
