Synopsis

Beyond the adventures that led Western science to define a “meter” and transform it into a “universal” measure to delimit and demarcate territories, there is another history, broader than any measurement. A history that associates the determinacy of things with a violent conquest over those things and over people transformed into things. Filmmakers Sasha Litvintseva and Beny Wagner have produced a film that distorts the measurements of “real” images to re-demarcate history. (C. A.)
