Director Statement

"Triumph of time" is a short film about the choices we make and the way we deal with our regrets. It tells the story of a young man, who loses his wife, but when given the chance to prevent it, he only makes it worst. The short is a combination of "Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind" and "Primer". We were inspired by the works of Isaac Asimov, Philip K. Dick, ,Michel Gondry and Ridley Scott.
It is a science fiction drama with a dark futuristic atmosphere.
The short is a part of 9 stories called "Omega chronicles" - Multiverse of stories with a dystopian ensemble. "Triumph" is a part of a trilogy about the Omega time Machine, Omega Chi (Time Bender) is about outer body vessels for Immortality, and Slingshot 7 is about a secret mission to save earth.

We plan to translate it's feature script to English for co-production. The philosophy behind it puts the humanity in the center. The person with a personal event horizon, which can be calculated. If the "user"'s chances are lower than a certain value - The protocol will prevent him from seeing the future. Such a constant factor will make the user to arrive at "pure thought" to recieve a personal messege from his future self.
The feature will explore the questions "What will make us happy?" and "Is my happynes in someone else's hands?"
