8 minutes and 19 seconds – that’s all the time we have until the news about the death of the sun reaches us. That’s what it takes for the light to travel from there to here. And then the darkness comes…

But the theme of this Apocalypse is not necessarily going to be expressed through a global cataclysm, horsemen of the apocalypse, angels of death, fire and destruction. It will rather be shown as something very personal, intimate and almost silent.

8 Minutes and 19 Seconds is an anthology film composed of 6 shorts created and directed by 6 different crews.
