This poetic black and white short film from the Netherlands was inspired by a fragment from an incomplete H. P. Lovecraft story. It's about a worker drone who lives in a crowded low-rent high-rise apartment. His only w...展开indow looks out onto a small courtyard boxed in on all sides by neighboring buildings. At night, he lies on a board shoved outside his window (like a gang plank) and looks up at the few stars he can see in the open space above the buildings. But the stars begin to affect him in strange ways and he starts to obsess on things between the known spaces. At work he stares into the neck of a co-worker, at a bookstore he stares closer and closer into the printed page until all he sees is black and imperfections in the printing that looks like stars. Only 5 minutes long this film manages to capture some of the atmosphere of Lovecraft's cosmic sensibilities. Shown at the 2004 H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival.
