Sorry, this film is no longer available.
A town observed from the hill facing it is treated as an architectural model illuminated by the lights of a home interior. The sounds cancel the distance of the shot, amplifying the details of places and actions lit up by beams of light. Places and actions appear as miniatures and are animated by the turning on and off of the lights in the room. The sounds of a wind band shift and double. The aria of an opera, deprived of voice, reverberates in the subtracted lights and landscape.
