Victor Moreno Rodríguez · Spain 2013 · 47m
Digital · Spanish with English subtitles · UK PREMIERE
To a minimalist symphony composed of the sounds of the wind and blows of metal upon stone, a man tackles a rock formation with a sledgehammer. Victor Moreno records this silent Sisyphean labour through tight and wide shots in keeping with the surroundings. A musing on this old-fashioned action in the era of modern technology and its unbearable lightness of being.
