Coughs & Codes
short film 2003
In a world governed by an obscure religious order, the High Priest believes that a strange coughing epidemic is a form of extra-terrestrial communication. Mekos Doubla, the Temple's master code breaker is assigned to decipher its cryptic message. His scepticism is shaken, following an incident which leaves him with a bandaged head.
Coughs & Codes is an arch refraction of consensus reality. Its dark other-worldly narrative is evoked in an anti-realist and elliptical style.
