An experimental art film which takes viewers on a mind-bending odyssey through the realms of love, life, immortality and the meaning of reality.

"Y is immortal and lives in paradise...or so he believes. When paradise starts coming apart around him and he begins receivin messages from his dead wife, he realises he's either losing his mind...or nothing is hat it seems."

But this is only one possible storyline. Is Y living in a paradise which begins to seemlike a virtual reality or is he a writer writing about a character living in a paraide that begins to seem like a virtual reality? Or is he a catatonic patient of a mental hospital imagining he's a writer writing about a writer who imagines he's...?

Not a film for those who like neat plots and resolutions.

EXIT has been called an experimental masterpiece and compared in theme to Kubrick's '2001: A Space Odyssey' by the organisers of the Hell Chess Film Festival in Madrid, Spain. 

Frank Schonweill, Dutch film critic and TeOverKill Festival curator, writing in Cutzine TOTF, described EXIT as "Existentialism in all it's glory"






Information for the Audience: 

EXIT is not a film for audiences who like straight genre or films with neat plotlines and resolutions.

EXIT is an experimental art film aimed more at the kind of people who would watch a video in an art gallery than the kind of people who 'go to the movies' for entertainment.

If you like the work of Matthew Barney, Mike Figgis, Peter Greenaway, Shuji Terayama, Kurt Kren, or Andrei Tarkovsky, you will probably enjoy EXIT.
