In ancient Greece "theoria" describes a journey to bear witness at a festival taking place in a foreign city. The "theoros" undertook the journey on behalf of their community and, upon returning home, described what they had seen with their own eyes. With "theoria" the first step towards knowledge is seeing. With a hero's journey the return is as essential as embarking in the first place—through the act of leaving and then returning after the arduous journey the new is metabolized and the old is seen in a new light.

Theoria is a scratch animation made by hand-painting 35mm filmstrip.

Theoria screened at the 23rd Media City Film Festival November 9th, 2018 and at Carbon Art & Design, Picton, Ontario, April 6th, 2019 with an improvised live soundtrack.
