Deeper Than Yesterday
In Ariel Kleiman’s, ‘Deeper Than Yesterday’, after three months submerged underwater, the men on a submarine have become savages. Oleg fears that losing perspective may mean losing himself.
This short film is set entirely on a military submarine, where the men are beginning to reveal their basest desires and impulses. The central character is Oleg, the sub’s captain, who is holding on to his last shred of humanity while his shipmates devolve around him. Things become complicated when the men spot a female corpse adrift at sea and bring the corpse on aboard…
Though sometimes difficult to watch, ‘Deeper Than Yesterday’ is filled great visuals, well thought out characters and with purpose and intensity.
