Un impulso colectivo - Curts Spain 9 min Catalan premiere


Our relationship with the creation of images starts with love: for a moment, for a person, for a landscape, for an emotional state. With their multiplication, the reasons why we make them more and more diffuse. To be rather than to be. We are at a historical and evolutionary crossroads. Today we can no longer trust our eyes. With the advent of Artificial Intelligence, we must begin to doubt everything. Platonist is an audiovisual essay about images, love, and its truth. Because without love there is no image.
