"Each film plays as a chapter recounting the creation of humankind in a fantastical manner. The first chapter Fallen, depicts an Eve-like character’s introduction to technology and the divine consequences of this meeting. The second chapter, Rise, resumes many years later, long after the female character's first meeting with technology. Here she has transformed from her original Eve-like state of naked innocence into a clothed mysterious being. In place of her original naivety our character now holds a cryptic knowledge of the natural world often feared and marked as witchcraft. As a result of this transformation the two characters of machine and human have switched their roles of protagonist and antagonist. Again their meeting results in a dramatic shift in the environment. The cause and ramifications of this event remains an ambiguous mystery. Is the flood a positive transformation of this world, or a tragic loss of the original environment?"
