Ab Absurdo (2023)

Students film | Comedy Duration 17:51

Through pitchblack humor that’s born from a familiar absurdity of life’s situational satir ‘’Ab Absurdo’’ offers a sharp insight to the minds of somewhat intertwined inner worlds of two lonely individuals.
Former starlet Ada and protagonist Jonas land on an unexpected journey throughout life to search for meaning and relief to one’s existence. Throughout thirty-something years the pair seem to peek through the life on stage as well as road to death.
