Synopsis

The film is structured on a twenty shot sequence of a room that is repeated three times. The first two sequences are in colour, and are shot according to a strict formal plan. Each shot contains a portion of the point of view of its adjacent partners. The second two sequences are in black and white and are more freely structured, even though they follow the spatial-formal pattern established in the first sequence. The only movement in the film is accidental – clouds seen through a window- otherwise nothing moves and there is no sound.
