In the introduction to his atypical philosophical essay, Ondřej Vavrečka asks, “What is the world?” Is it at all possible to discover, understand and describe something that is so random and disconnected, so unanchored in space and time, as is the world of today? Is it not needless to look for sense or meaning where there is none? Therefore, rather than looking for fixed points, the filmmaker focused on holes and gaps, on inconsistency and imperfection – in nature, in culture, in love and in work. Together with scientists and philosophers, from Althusser to Žižek, he uses a lively, stylistically and thematically eclectic collage to explore how emptiness can be pondered.
