INVICTUS

INVICTUS POEM BY W.E. HENLEY

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeoning of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find me, unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

"OUT OF THE NIGHT THAT COVERS ME, BLACK AS THE PIT FROM POLE TO POLE"
INVICTUS PAINTS AN ANALOGOUS SURREAL DARK WORLD BASED ON THE POPULAR POEM BY W.E. HENLEY.  THE DOMINAT SOUL OF HUMANITY BROUGHT TO LIFE THROUGH THE COLLECTIVE HISTORY OF ELEPHANTS UNDER RULE, ALL WHILE THE CIRCUS AND ITS' MORBITITY IS THE EMBODIMENT OF LIFES OBSTACLES. THE ARC CONSTRUCTED IS ONE NOT ABSENT OF DEFEAT, STRUGGLE AND IN THE END; STRENGTH.

WILLIAM ERNEST HENLEY (1849–1903)

"BEYOND THIS PLACE OF WRATH AND TEARS, LOOMS BUT THE HORROR OF THE SHADE"
INVICTUS WAS INSPIRED BY THE DARKNESS THE POEM PAINTS AND THE SENSE OF STRUGGLE WITHIN. THE FILM DRAWS VISUAL INSPIRATION FROM THE BOOK "THE NIGHT CIRCUS" FROM ERIN MORGENSTERN (2011). THE MARRIAGE OF STRUGGLE AND THE CIRCUS COMBINED WITH THE GENERAL COLOSSAL APPEARANCE OF ELEPHANTS COALESCE IN A DARK AND STRANGE WORLD THAT SHOULD FEEL MYSTERIOUS AND MORBID, YET POWERFUL AND REFLECTIVE.
"UNDER THE BLUDGEONING OF CHANCE, MY HEAD IS BLOODY; BUT UNBOWED"
