was filmed over the course of three years in Rotterdam, Tokyo and Fez.
Starting with a VHS JVC GX-N7E telecamera, the central instrument of the operation, the three authors planned, collected, shot, interpreted, and lived the various places and stories of the three cities. The  result is an enormous kaleidoscopic corpus of recordings, boiled down to a feature-length film in three episodes:
 “The Fall of Rotterdam”, “The Divine Groom” and “The Foundation of Fès”.
