After the sudden death of acclaimed documentary filmmaker Michael Glawogger in April 2014, his longstanding collaborator and editor Monika Willi realises a film out of the footage Glawogger shot over the course of 4 months and 19 days in the Balkans, Italy, North and West Africa. Willi’s dreamlike compendium of his roving observations of human labour and culture across more than a dozen countries creates a poignant, cathartic and enthralling non-fiction film, one which is both a quintessential expression of Glawogger’s cinematic drive and an elegy to his restless spirit.
