Synopsis

1 psychedelia ? 2 three sentences ? 3 slow, fast, slow ? 4 empty factories losing substance ? 5 revolution told through anthropomorphic bubbles ? 6 greenhouse: a model of the world ? 7 final scene: amazing panning shot of daybreak ? 8 the sound of a train, fade to white ? 9 freeze-frame: the person crossing the tracks leaves behind traces ? 10 politics: final scene shot in Lodz in the year 1980

20 Szirtes's masterful experimental work is a dazzling composition of several years of filming within an industrial macro/microcosm, an abstract model of revolution and the beauty of daybreak.
