Two men roll a barrel through a desolate and hostile landscape. With them they carry communication equipment with which they attempt to make contact with other civilisations, another life. But the reception is poor and thus they seek higher ground. They travel through a gloomy, barren world with the hope of a better life seemingly never more distant.

“Jasper” is set in an unknown time and an unknown place, a story of an absurd world. The ambition to continuously strive for new goals is both a blessing and a curse. For whom are we striving and what do we think we will achieve when we are done?

With its minimalitic dialogue and grandiose pictures “Jasper” is as much an experience and a sentiment as it is a narrative. One should therefore not so much look for answers rather be inspired by one’s own assosciations and thoughts concerning that which the themes try to express about life and one’s emotional state in today’s society. A society that is mostly defi ned by self-fullfi llment and the fear of failing in that quest. To be unable to fullfi l one’s own demands as well as others. We look for a purpose and when we fail to fi nd it we turn to the hope that the answer lies in tomorrow.
