    • Synopsis
    • The Death & Life of Otto Bloom is a fictional documentary about a man who experiences time in reverse - passing backwards through the years, while remembering the future. The film charts Bloom's rise from scientific oddity to international superstar as he searches for love and meaning in this strange, backwards world. Over the years, Bloom enjoys a series of romantic relationships, while challenging preconceived notions about life, death and the nature of time. When the world proves unready for Bloom's radical ideas, his fall from grace is as swift as it is tragic. But for Bloom, the end is only the beginning...
