Atraksion (2001)

Synopsis

 

Aimlessly, gale-footed thugs stroll through a desolate and peeling landscape. One of them dares to look at a blinding light. Is this the Liberation? The man decides to take a chance.

 

“For me, 'Atraksion' meant getting to know the digital image medium. My part was of course limited to giving the necessary guidelines to the computer scientists, whereby I had to establish that the expertise of my assistants was infinitely greater than mine. ”
