Genesis is a 1998 short horror film directed by Nacho Cerda. In the film, a sculptor (Pep Tasar) is devoted to his beautiful wife (Trae Houlihan). Both his career and his personal life are very successful and the sculptor could not be happier if he tried. However, he suddenly experiences a deeply personal traumatic loss and this changes everything he thought he knew about his life. His loss consumes him and he is temporarily unable to do everything. As a way to deal with his loss, the sculptor throws himself into his work. He works endlessly on his sculptures trying to come up with the perfect sculpture to emulate his feelings. When he finally feels he has achieved his goal, his excitement is short-lived. His new sculpture makes an impact on his life that he did not expect. Would the sculptor have been better off dealing with his loss differently, or is this exactly what he needed?
