Here, After

Produced for the upcoming launch of American Dream X, UNC’s latest Viscom project, Here, After is an abstract look at life, death and the space between the two, guided by the stories of a cryonicist, an assisted-suicide physician and a grieving mother. Their stories cover the spectrum of toska, a word best described by Vladimir Nabokov: “At its deepest and most painful, it is a sensation of great spiritual anguish, often without any specific cause. At less morbid levels it is a dull ache of the soul, a longing with nothing to long for, a sick pining, a vague restlessness, mental throes, yearning. In particular cases it may be the desire for somebody or something specific, nostalgia, love-sickness. At the lowest level it grades into ennui, boredom.”
