Rosa Barba's film tells the story of a man who loses his eyesight. A friend of his tries to help him memorise the objects in his home before he goes blind. Images of a night flight over an archipelago become a metaphor for the man’s search for his memories and the disappearance of a formerly certain world. The film urges us to reassess our environments, exploring the beauty of disintegration through the patterns of experience of a place that doesn’t exist anymore.

Rosa Barba lives in Berlin. She has an interest in film and the way it articulates space, placing the work and the viewer in a new relationship. Her works are situated between experimental documentary and fictional narrative.
