Doors of Perception

14 min, Germany. In a world where everything unknown is black infinity a nameless person has to overcome the temptation of the visible to be free. The limitation of perception causes the fear of the unknown. The unknown seems unimaginable. We don’t experience it: So do we only see what we know? 
“Doors of perception” is a fairy tale in black light. In a world where the unknown is black infinity an individual wakes up and has to look for her ways in darkness. She sets off to search for the familiar, the trustworthy. But does the truth lie in the visible?
