Obsession

A documentary film which examines the clear concept of an obsessive sensation. The film explores different kinds of obsessions: obsession with love, death, food, knowledge, money, sex, control, exposure, cleaning, fame, and more. The film sketches a line that connects obsession to the Zeitgeist and to our modern lifestyle, binding them together, while considering the idea that obsession is the most common “disease” of the 21st century. The viewer is taken on an intense journey that examines how obsession is created, what feeds obsession, how obsession serves the obsessed, and how it is motivated by the endless aspiration to achieve salvation.
