Masters of Dox

A Long Way From Home

Jay Rosenblatt
Screening time  
23.02. / Tuesday, 20:00 - 22:00 Theatre 2  
This elegiac vision of Jay Rosenblatt is a reflection on the final moments of Christ’s suffering.

The film, experimental both in form and content and following the found footage convention, asks questions about corporeality and evanescence inherent to every living creature. Above all, it expresses boundless despair, pain and longing for everything that irreversibly turns into nothingness. Referring to Bill Morrison’s Decasia, Rosenblatt’s film is farewell to cinema, which, due to the use of film stock, was the art practiced by alchemists for many decades.
