Filmmaker Michiel van Bakel puts a horseman on a deserted square in Rotterdam in a special perspective. Or rather in 32 different perspectives: by means of shots from just as many digital cameras running simultaneously, set up in a circle around the rider, he constructs a surreal image. Van Bakel plays a subtle game with time, sound and movement.
