The journey through the South of England (Oxfordshire and Berkshire) of the eccentric, rebellious scholar Robinson and his old video camera. The voice-over narration warns the audience that Robinson has just been released from the prison in Edgcott, reaching the closest city in search for a place from which to look, believing that “if he looked at it hard enough, he could cause the surface of the city to reveal to him the molecular basis of historical events, and in this way he hoped to see into the future.” Robinson thought he could also communicate with “non-human intelligences” determined to preserve life on Earth. The background to this cinematic essay is populated with current issues like the global economic downturn, the war in Afghanistan, and climate change.
