Sound by O and Trumatic

The title "The Counting Rope" refers to the profane use of praying beads in various cultures, its meditative effects, its haptical quality, and its physical definition of time. The movie metaphorically deals with the transcended and also the unconscious use of praying beads. Each observation has got its own time-span, divided by a short formalistic sequence that refers to the beads themselves.
From stressful to contemplative, the hierarchy of attention represents an emotional selection without moral.
