An eye-catching, darkly inventive and visually rich, fairy tale directed by Student Academy Award finalist Carlos Andre Stevens. Certainly, this alchemist can also make gold with a mysterious machine, but at a high price, indeed: namely, his memories. He writes a letter, now to his son to tell him about his earlier actions. But it is a remarkable and delightful short movie to watch and listen to as it has the seriousness of John Hurt’s vocal abilities combined with magical fantasy, fiction and ultimate design.
The Alchemist’s letter discloses parallel tales of a father who gave his memories to a Gold making machine and of a son who must determine a preference whether or not to follow in his father’s footsteps.
