Oceans, lights, shadows.

Mountains in the sky.

Streams flowing.

Wind gracing the tree tops.

Your body, vibrating and alive.

And everything in the sense of now.

The Sense of Now is a poetic, wordless, documentary by director Arjarn Jin that explores the feeling of being present, underscoring experiences that ignite human consciousness. Through precise observations in the mountainous region of Yunnan, China, the film captures the ineffable, sensorial aspects of daily life, which leaves one with a sense of awakening.
