The studio starts from a Tabula Rasa: the empty studio. As a maker we where forced to 'cre-ate' out of nothing. As a documentary with 'facts', with 'documents', there is essentially no reason not to bring that material into the studio. An underground courtyard where images scan the mutual relationships and see the poetry of the repetition. - The visible reality is no longer our only real criterion. A film as a metaphor for the current political situation of undocumented people.
