An experimental travelogue film that follows K a traveler and his encounter with the girl that he met last year, except, she claims she's not her. In order to find out the truth K and the girl set out on another trip to the places that they've supposed to went last year or did they?


Director's Statement

We set out on a 7 days shoot with a concept and idea from Alain Resnais Last Year in Marienbad (1961). The sort was filmed with no script and scenes being improvised with actors. It was an experiment and exercise at the same time for me, since I rarely filmed without a script, the challenge was then putting the finish film together, and try to make sense out of it. It was also my first work to purposely used camera movement and mobility to drive the visuals.
