Notes for the Persistance of Things

Following in the footsteps of the Brazilian writer Clarice Lispector (1920–1977) a polyphonic film explores the interrelation among humans and non-human beings and entities such as technologies, phenomena, environments and things. Recorded footage in the northeastern Brazilian city of Recife, the place itself as much as the camera equipment become sensual co-creative agents, fabulating tools in the artistic work-in-process. It takes us (along) into a vibrant tactile world in which ordinary things are in the foreground.
