Silk Road

Jytte Rex, Denmark, 2004

76 min.DK/Feature

"This film is about the state attained by proximity of death. Christine, a picture restorer, is hovering on the cusp between life and death, with the ensuing fragmentary perception of time and insight into planes that normally remain apart. The process of letting go of the familiar and turning towards the unknown is the theme of the film and its plot per se, brought to life by a soundtrack and visuals that render the energy of this state visible. In this context, the mind of the protagonist becomes a membrane conveying a journey in free space devoid of time and limitations." - Jytte Rex
