Brief Synopsis:
What is life? Is it desireable? Is imposing life moral? These are questions that are being explored in this short documentary. It starts with the beginning of the universe and ends in our modern times. It explores how life functions, what it's tools are and how it applies to humans.
Intention:
The goal of this edit is to introduce the viewer to the philosophy of antinatalism.

I stumbled across a speech about antinatalism on youtube that started with the beginning of the universe and ended in our modern times. The speech really impressed me and motivated me to create this fanedit.
Other Sources:
- Inmendhams Speech about Life (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dIztzmUkuzk)
- Soundtrack by Endless Melancholy - Music For Quiet Mornings
Special Thanks:
- To Inmendham for being who he is and offering his philosophy on Youtube.
- To Neglify and hasmak for reviewing the cut and providing helpful suggestions.
Release Information
AVI/MKV
Editing Details:
I used the narration as a basis and edited the footage from 'The Tree of Life' to fit the speech. I cut some parts of the narration when there was no good footage available. I also used the soundtrack to evoke a feeling in the viewer that mirrors the content of what is being spoken.
Cuts and Additions:
The documentary is edited to fit the narration. Therefore, most of the original film is cut.

The concept of antinatalism is new to me, but The Tree of Life was not. I found this to be a really enjoyable watch, very interesting and predictably beautiful. The visual editing was flawless, and the balance of music and speech was perfect, even if the source for the lecture was clearly very compressed before the editor got his hands on it. It's still easy to understand and follow, though, so it doesn't really do much harm to the finished product. I recommend checking this out if you're intrigued; the philosophy behind the concept isn't particularly optimistic, but it is fascinating.
