Clinamen is the Latin name Lucretius gave to the unpredictable swerve of atoms, in order to defend the atomistic doctrine of Epicurus.
The Anxiety of Influence, Melville’s Epigrams, Windy sunsets are all inspiration behind Clinamen – Kasafilms short film. “Connected only by a Poetic Misreading,” Greg Kotler describes the idea of connecting Lo-Fi pictures and field recordings, taken by film-director Bar Alon during her 2014 tenure in Paris.
The film makes a swerve away from a precursor, alluding to the proposition that the original work was only precise and accurate up until a particular end; at which point, the successive author makes the corrective motion.
