Field of Daisies
TITLE: Field of Daisies
AUTHOR: Almog Avidan Antonir
CATEGORY: Mind & Analysis
This short film portrays the effects on the mind when one strives to achieve perfection through a creative process. David, the protagonist, attempts to find the perfect ending for his script. However, by succumbing to external pressures and recalling his past failures, his mental state becomes unstable. He battles his own thoughts and even begins to doubt his own self-worth in trying to find the most meaningful finale to his story. The film relates to the overall theme of entropy because it suggests that the creative process must first inevitably lead to a concoction of conflicting ideas that together create a certain kind of chaos, before anything of value can be produced.
