Performances by Loophole Cinema with light, lenses, projections and bodily interventions are the source of this film. By means of stop-motion, long shutter speeds and opticals these images are manipulated and intensified; resulting in a labyrinth of spaces. The essence of cinema, writing with light, is represented in a hallucinatory way.
