short film SYNOPSIS A young, artistic man experiences visions of a world that he once knew with sight. Having never fully come to terms with a boyhood train accident that left him blind, he encounters potent, surreal apparitions both in his dream life and his waking life. As his poetic imagination flourishes, he rediscovers sincerity.
Sincerus (in latin) = sincere + pure + natural + uninjured + whole + genuine
DIRECTOR'S STATEMENT Most people are baffled, amused and even impressed by the language of their dreams but remain dismissive of these strange narratives. Fewer still are motivated by inner visions to change their lives. This is unlike the blind character in SINCERUS. His mind's eye fluidly transfers waking dream life into his waking reality. His night dreams are also poetic laboratories. The spontaneity and beauty of these experiences inspire him to emotionally transform. SINCERUS portrays that blind people also seek inner emotional truths in their lives.
