a film project by Sandro Bocci

Current status: Production

Principle of everything is Àpeiron, the Boundless, whence all the things have their origin and thence they find their destruction, as is the order of things; for they give justice and reparation to one another for their injustice, in conformity with the ordinance of Time.
— (Anaximander [in Simplicio] fr. DK12B1)



Àpeiron (The Undefined) is a contemplation of time, a concept hard to define with words which that eludes casual investigation about its very nature.

The film unfolds through a subjective audio-visual path, beginning from abstraction and progressively arrives to a more human perspective of the world, for then returning back to abstraction in a cyclical journey. The cycle is a direct inspiration from an ancient philosopher, Anaximander, whose idea named the film.

Àpeiron is a visual storytelling of handcrafted footage, microscopy, astrophotography, naturalistic sequences and subjective points of view that takes the viewer from an imaginary plane to a real one. The result is a motley collage in terms of space-time, connected by a poetic voice over. The voice stands as a metaphor of the impossibility to stop the present and the nature of collective and personal memory. The infinite dimensions on the topic of time find a convergence within the imagery of poetic language.

The sequences don’t bound the viewer to a linear narration. Instead it leaves space to a plentiful of interpretations resulting from a collage of memories, experiences and visual abstractions.
