psychedelia - three sentences - slow, fast, slow - empty factories losing substance - revolution told through anthropomorphic bubbles - greenhouse: a model of the world - final scene: amazing panning shot of daybreak - the sound of a train, fade to white - freeze-frame: the person crossing the tracks leaves behind traces - politics: final scene shot in Lodz in the year 1980

Szirtes's masterful experimental work is a dazzling composition of several years of filming within an industrial macro/microcosm, an abstract model of revolution and the beauty of daybreak.
