Ascension x Zoé Le Ber and Dustin Yellin

Based on Plato’s 'Allegory of the Cave' - an analogy created by the Greek philosopher which explores the complexities in understanding the mental and physical reality of inside vs. outside - French actress and filmmaker Zoé Le Ber and artist Dustin Yellin have created their own interpretation of the story in a black and white tale starring Zoe, entitled "Ascension" - the film also features Paris-born model Camille Rowe Pourcheresse.

Ascension takes you into "the middle of nowhere, you take the time to think" explains le Ber. "Plato crossed the centuries with words. As all of us, he was born in a cave and he decided to ascend into the light toward the unknown. The world outside revealed a plethora of knowledge and experience that changed the fabric of his being permanently. He had the courage to descend again down into the darkness to share his own enlightenment. This descent was his ascension."
