Departing from a passage of the Ecclesiastes reflecting on the insatiable desire of watching and listening to the things of the world (“All things are wearisome, more than one can describe; the eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor the ear content with hearing”), begins a visual and acoustic chase of archival images from WWI, videos found in a mobile phone, whispers in the street, the melody of a piano, silent landscapes, urban architecture, and night lights.
