Oscar-winning screen icon Susan Sarandon and Armenian painter Tigran Tsitoghdzyan discuss how the apparently in conflict values of beauty and aging are perceived in our modern society dominated by social media, as he limns her portrait during a timeless sitting session.
With this film the director sets in motion his theory on poetics of cinematic art, by creating the sense memories of an artist in a non-linear, challenging story-telling scheme.
'Intimations of Immortality' is a reference taken from a famous ode of British Romantic poet William Wordsworth, 'Ode: Intimations of Immortality from Recollections of Early Childhood'. For Wordsworth poetry was all about the 'memories' we have. So is long to explain, but this has become a revelation to the director's craft as an essential part of filmmaking:
the reconstruction of deep thought-processes, which we can call memories but also 'omens' and other sort of 'visions', imagery occurring in the internal eye of the subject.
