Save with a LIFF 2022 Pass

Matter Out Of Place is an incredibly innovative and strangely beautiful environmental film about rubbish and the way it has spread to the most remote corners of the planet. Acclaimed director Nikolaus Geyrhalter (Our Daily Bread, Homo Sapiens) uses dizzying camerawork and clever sound design to follow the traces of our refuse across the world from ski resorts at the top of Alpine peaks to desert clean ups at the Burning Man Festival. He sheds light on the endless struggle of people to gain control over their ever proliferating quantities of waste.
