In her film The Atlantic Man Marguerite Duras said, “you will look at what you see. But you will look at it absolutely. You will try to look at it until your sight fails, until it makes itself blind, and even through this blindness you must try again to look. Until the end.” Llara, the main character in this work, walks through ruins in a natural setting: a landscape that is about to be devoured by nature and the passing of time which transmits a number of physical sensations to the beholder. Our bodies are then assaulted by the heat and the sound of the environment. And as Llara walks, the drought becomes more and more physical. Or at least apparently so, for Llara’s walk is actually fictional: it takes place in a disjointed time that is not our own, a time heralding the possibility of many different times.
