The Light and The Paper

Directed by Sara van der Heide
Netherlands, 2016
Short, Avant-Garde

Synopsis

How empty is a blank page? This film carefully studies the prime precondition for seeing: the presence of light. Just like a film screening, information from a book reaches us thanks to beams of light reflecting. This brief meditation reminds us that reading is basically a directed form of seeing.

This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
