Complex, allusive and visually ravishing, this remarkable essay-film imagines a series of letters from a globally-roving cameraman, nagging away at what constructs and consti- tutes individual and collective memory, history, and the mediated image itself. At times an almost science fiction analysis of Japanese customs, of Icelandic landscapes, of Hitchcock’s Vertigo, of documentaries.
