Empedocles is a sort of film study, which uses beautiful shots to accompany a voiceover. It is meant to present the idea that the universe is indifferent. Empedocles, a great philosopher, presented the idea that life is simply different matter. This is the essence of the film. This film was shown at BAYMN FEST 2013.
