Working to Beat the Devil

Dir. Chu-Li Shewring & Adam Gutch / 2014 / 24 mins
“Images of all past actions incessantly passing through the brain…”
An ageing scientist troubled and confused by remembrances from his past, toils night and day to (re)discover secrets to the creation of life. The creature, struggling for existence in the natural world, journeys unceasingly to find its creator.
