    Running time: 2h 29mins (the full running time, inclusive of trailers)

    An inspiring series of eight mystic vignettes unfolding like childlike wonder.

    Each story develops a kaleidoscopic, surreal vision. Scenes ranging from the apocalyptic apparitions from a young boy who stumbles on a fox wedding in forest, to a solider confronting the ghosts of war.

    A tribute to Vincent van Gogh (played by Martin Scorsese) is depicted with breath-taking beauty, and leaves us with a message of hope and gentle warning to save Earth, by returning to nature and basic materials.
