This Vahan Bedelian directed, two time GRAND PRIZE winning short film absurdly retells the Sisyphus punishment myth with the stone rolling up the hill being a working wagon fueled by the Nectar of the Gods. Hollywood talent 2020 Holy Grail IFF & Monthly Online IFF BEST ACTOR Phillip E. Walker-MFA is the sole performer of this comic, one-man-silent petite motion picture.

Director's Biography

Being the 2020 Indus River Cinefest BEST EDITOR & Global Monthly Film Competition BEST TRAILER Awards Winner, Vahan Bedelian was born May 6, 1991 of Armenian heritage. Now a top of his class, 2nd year graduate film student out of Loyola Marymount University School of Film and Television in Los Angeles California USA, he first got into filmmaking by shooting and editing documentaries on martial artists. From this background, Vahan brings a strong understanding of rhythm and action in visual storytelling. He combines these elements with his love of setting, production design, and generally strange imagery for a style that he hopes can feel unique and fresh to audiences.

Director's Statement

I feel like we can all relate to trying to carry too many things at the same time, both literally and metaphorically. I wanted to make a movie about that.
