noun. Force of mouvement. Impulse.
In the process of her ongoing film shoot in New York city, a filmmaker finds herself questioning the origin of movement. She is forced to revise her screenplay as the main actor leaves the production. An unexpected replacement appears, giving her a new impulse, a liberating impetus.
IMPETUS combines documentary and autofiction, in an ode to the possibilities offered by the intervals between real and imaginary.
