sci-fi, horror / United States / 2019 / 10:30 / Polish premiere


If “Prefigured” was a house instead of a short film, its building materials would be fatalism, dread, and the acceptance of humanity’s cosmic insignificance. Its basement would be The Mariana Trench; teaming with unknown lifeforms that defy scientific understanding, and its attic would be a black hole; bridging us to some hidden dimension overseen by an ancient entity.

Equal parts science-fiction, drama, and Lovecraftian horror, “Prefigured” is inspired by a simple premise – that a singular moment or experience, completely outside of our control or desires, can come to define our entire lives. This film follows a reluctant individual who, under the imposing implications of a strange phenomenon, seeks out an esoteric support group for a chance at either enlightenment or closure.


“We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far”.

H.P. Lovecraft
