Precognition 

(2013)

 

Precognition (2013) is a fantasy about a never-made film by W.J.Has - Donkey playing a Lyre. He was a visionary, who created his own film cosmology. He explored worlds bordering on dream and reality, cabinets of curiosities and time knots, where past, present and future overlap (like in The Saragossa Manuscipt [1964] or The Hourglass Sanatorium [1973]). 

 

ANABEL

[The donkey] became synonymous with obstinacy and stupidity...

ANABELLE:

...but he used to be, and still is a symbol of a creature that comprehends things and occurences, which escape the mind
