Video: Symmetropia is a short film that starts weird, gets weirder, and then leaves you sitting there thinking, "What the hell just happened?"

It begins with what looks like a man being given the most intense immersion therapy for an irrational fear (symmetry) ever. He's blindfolded and driven to a forest where all the trees look the same, so that he is surrounded by symmetry. Also he is listening to a tape of palindromes being read out loud.

All of that is ridiculous. But then it gets so much more bizarre.

Zachary Davis wrote and directed this, and he clearly has a very strange mind.
