A surrealist short by painter and director, Prosper Pariente. The film, whose opening title reads ‘A sketch of a father’s madness,’ follows the tortured inner world of a bereaved father who has lost his daughter and is now trying to dig her out of her own grave. The film goes back and forth between black & white and technicolour footage, featuring the most stunning frame compositions by cinematographer Ya’ackov Kallach – a journey traversing reality, dream state, and memory.
