ASCENSION is a new short film by Antonio Urquijo de Simon and Jean-Marc Joseph - produced by me, Ralf Obergfell.
It tells the story of a brave teenage boy (Jakob Obergfell) who embarks on a journey into the heart of the Great Forest in search of answers.
ASCENSION is a coming-of-age tale about facing the fear of change, learning to observe rather than see, and truly listening rather than simply hearing. It's also a tale of hope in a world that, for many, feels increasingly bleak and in decline.
