Jamin Winans’ Myth of Man Gets an Intriguing Teaser

The “sci-fi odyssey” is Winans’ first feature film in a decade.

If you’re unfamiliar with the work of Jamin Winans, then you’re missing out one of the more interesting indie filmmakers around. 2009’s Ink was a bizarre dream of a film packed with captivating images à la Terry Gilliam and Jean-Pierre Jeunet while 2014’s The Frame was a high-concept sci-fi film about faith and free will.

In 2020, Winans directed a documentary titled Childhood 2.0 about the effects of the internet on kids, but now he’s back with his first feature film in a decade. According to Winans, Myth of Man is “a sci-fi odyssey that’s epic in scope, but a very personal and intimate story about love and mortality.” As evidenced from the above teaser, the film — which Winans spent a decade making, and contains no spoken dialog — definitely taps into a bizarre steampunk vibe.

Myth of Man is currently set for a fall 2024 festival debut.
