A black-and-white portrait of septuagenarian French filmmaker Jean-Marie Straub. Straub, viewed from one side, sits on a grave in Montmartre Cemetery. While the scenery remains clear, the image of
Straub gradually blurs, indicating his slight movements as successive frames are laid over each other. When a guard instructs him to move (the conversation, in French, appears in english subtitles), he says fine, I’ll go sit on my wife’s grave. (Brian Boucher)

In the presence of Oleg Tcherny and Daniel Heller-Roazen.
