A gripping and graphic story of love, schizophrenia, urban panache and absinthe addiction. Looking at her impassive face, strange sensation envelopes his being; numbing him against reality and turning the imaginary into the tangible. His hearing is blurred by quirky sounds and slowly, the dissonance of a mocking world dissolves into a murmuring smear. She has freed him... The film was shot on super35 negative and hand cranked 16mm reversal.
