ALL TRACE IS GONE, NO CLAMOUR FOR A KISS
Two exiled beings trade stories of kin, loss, folklore, and queer intimacy as they prepare for reincarnation in a forest. Reminiscent of silent movies, the dialogue appears on screen in tranquility. Juxtaposing analogue film and digital animation, the film is guided by a score composed of Jazz music, improvised vocals and found sounds. Divided into five chapters — “Mother”, “A Love Story”, “The Tower”, “Unknown Land” and “Haunted Island”, the film investigates personal narratives and collective memories linked to specific localities, exploring the persistence of the past in the present.
