According to the director, this is not an art film, but rather an artwork in the form of a film. AUN is a visualisation of elements of the philosophy of Claude Lévi-Strauss and Japanese Shinto, rejecting the artificial division between man and nature. The idea is that, owing to the Enlightenment and the banishing of religion, man is no longer able to feel, and can only believe in what can be seen.
However, nature is the origin and creator of all, the film argues, and it would be beneficial to the continuance of the human race to strengthen our relationship with nature and spirituality. The film sees a future in which all life is purely sensual and suggests new rituals and mythologies with which to discover the presumed supernatural powers.
