Paths End (2014 / US/PT / 11min)
Directed by Pierce Warnecke
Paths End is a fragmented and fictitious cartography of trails leading to nowhere, indirectly documenting a personal experience of intense immersion, disorientation and fear in the wilderness. It is a textural recomposition of the various cues that define or erase a given route. It is an audiovisual exploration of false starts, dead ends, and incompleteness.
