The term “Horror Vacui” was coined by Aristotle, and it means fear of empty space. It is used as a metaphor of the fear of the uncertain future that causes feelings of anxiety and loneliness. With its one take sequences and free-associative editing style this meditative film sends out warning of the growing hyper-militarization of the world we live in, and what it causes to the human psyche. Due to the space and time of the events taking place in film being blurred, it can all happen everywhere at any time, in this globalized world.
The film is stylistically following Boris Poljak’s previous award-winning films „The Split Watercolour“, „Autofocus“ and „They Just Come and Go” forming a film tetralogy.
