In Waking Hours

Belgium, 2015
Documentary, Short


In 1632, Dr Plempius conceived an experiment into vision. One sets up a freshly deceased cow’s eye in a darkened room and the painting that emerges perfectly depicts all the objects in the outside world. Sarah Vanagt films her niece, meticulously following the master’s instructions.
