The Messenger * Hermes Remembers


Hermes, the most human-like of all the Olympian gods, is now old. On this day he remembers himself as a younger transgendered man, irrepressible but needy of his father Zeus and his aunt Aphrodite. He roams the world, on a quest for love and self-validation. He misbehaves it's true, but this is not a cautionary tale, he is after all a god and can do as he pleases.
Remembering Hermes is also a 4th dimensional being so he views time via eternal recurrence.
You see, TIME is circular and in layers for a 4th dimensional being. Memories are also seen both clear or hazy depending on their importance.

In the beginning it was young Hermes quest to find a way to fully love himself inside the inter-related domains of earth, sky, fire and water, in order to be successful and be a fully realized Messenger of the Gods.

Filmed in many wondrous locations around the globe since 1998, this story commingles the divine with the mundane across the vast spectrum of the imagination utilizing the five elements water, air, earth and fire & music; to arrive at it's quintessence.

NOTE : This movie is not controversial because it pertains to Mythological History.
