Running from Chronos

The only way to escape from the relentless monotony of a life trapped by the chronological passage of time (in ancient Greek 'Chronos'), is to be able to recognize and catch that instant, brought to us by Destiny, that can change everything: 'Kairos'.

Director Statement

'Running from Chronos' is my first official short film. Its origin is to be found in a discovery I made a few years ago of the different terms the Greeks used to identify Time: 'Kairos' and 'Chronos'. The practical skills and filmmaking knowledge I gained since then, made it possible for me to realize this film today.
