Metaphysics: a branch of philosophy concerned with explaining the fundamental nature of being and the world.

How can we tell what is real and what is not?

3D animation, for example, is becoming more and more sophisticated with each passing year. In this short film combining live action and, you've guessed it, animation, one young man sits down to write a childhood friend a letter, describing just how this state of affairs came about.

It is almost as if he is convincing himself of his own argument, in order to give himself the courage to, once and for all, discover whether the world in which we live is true or not.

Plenty of food for thought, then, in this short film from Auke Rick Akkerman and David Oldenburger.
