26th TIDF: World Premiere

One of the most dangerous yet simultaneously highest-in-demand product for a number of uses and years – asbestos is all set for a close-up in this ingenious film breaking down the boundaries between investigative documentary, experimental essay, and video art. Filming every aspect of this covertly lethal mineral, from its molecular structure, and its industrial uses to its removal attempts, with a distinctively artistic and highly inspired cinematic language, the film constructs a mysterious cinematic landscape as unfamiliar as it is entrancing. Sarah del Pino, a multi-faceted and restless visual artist, delivers a film that defies every label but opens itself up to a wide range of interesting fields, steering thoughts and senses to unpredictable, prolific paths.
