synopsis

A middle-aged man is looking at a series of encyclopedic images of the creation of the cosmos, from which humanity is absent, apart from some of its works and their ruins. Lulled to sleep by an advertising spot, he will sink into a nightmare of arctic hunters intent on killing polar bears. In the meantime, two pieces of contemporary music by the composer Agazzi and a text referring to an episode of suicide that actually took place during the director’s childhood invite us to “write once, erase twice.”

director's statement

 is the first of five films on absence. Three independent languages: Agazzi’s testamentary music, images from the Prelinger Archives and a text linked to a childhood memory paint a poignant and melancholic picture of existence, calling to mind Bernhard’s novel Ja and surgically removing any residue of hope and redemption.
