Film: Begotten
"Language bearers, photographers, diary makers. You with your memory are dead, frozen. Lost in a present that never stops passing. Here lives the incantation of matter. A language forever. Like a flame burning away the darkness, life is flesh on bone convulsing above the ground."
Opening Text

Begotten is a 1990 Surreal Horror experimental film written, produced and directed by E Elias Merhige. The film was shot entirely in black-and-white with no dialogue whatsoever. The film is basically a reimagining of the story of the Genesis.

A (much shorter) Spiritual Sequel, Din of Celestial Birds, was released in 2006.
