Formally this video deals with the relation between image and sound. The sound is a voice record
from a mc which I had found accidently. It was recorded during a conference and contains an interview
with claude thomas. He is telling about his experiences during the war in Vietnam. I was so much impressed by the sound and expression of his voice describing the war from the soldier's viewpoint that I tried to decrease the rulership of the video images as much as possible - at the same time underlining what was said. In the end you will see a person walking, slowly walking through empty landscapes, you will see some phenomena from nature which I had filmed and collected before, you might get lost in a kind of utopian landscape with a text which is just real, realistic and a result.
