The Unanswered Question (2021)

As we navigated our way out of the pandemic, and connections between us reemerged, Ives' The Unanswered Question seemed an anthem for a humanity transfigured. This short film connects us across three intercontinental locations - London, Berlin & Caracas - as we collectively and individually seek answers, musically, spiritually, religiously and through connection with our own personal and cultural histories. Whilst Ives' melodic question remains unresolved - a haunting trumpet echoing through space - a new question arises: is it not this very transient state in which we might find peace from our struggles?
