Altarus (by fygure)

In 2023, a team of researchers stumbles upon a mysterious recording hidden at the core of fragments from a meteorite that crashed on Earth. This unexpected treasure reveals a captivating space adventure, an odyssey into the unknown, the origin and purpose of which remain an enigma.

This content, released under the enigmatic title "Altarus," teeters between experimental documentary and immersive storytelling. Raw and haunting images, apparently filmed by the crew, depict a journey beyond the stars, towards infinity. As time and space warp, the crew is drawn into a metaphysical journey where reality and illusion blend in terrifying ways.

The video is sprinkled with cryptic messages, and disturbing images that defy rational explanation. It abruptly ends, leaving the mysteries it exposed unresolved. Who were these travelers? What was their ultimate goal? And what strange truths did they discover in the darkest corners of the universe?

"Altarus," an extraordinary adventure, ready to challenge the perception of reality.
