All That Passes By Through a Window That Doesn't Open Martin DiCicco

Film index A to Z

The winner of the first-film competition at Visions du réel and of the award for artistic vision at the Camden Festival, All That Passes By Through a Window That Doesn’t Open heralds the arrival of a towering new talent, Martin DiCicco. Filmed in the arid Caucasus, with workers and stationmasters who have been waiting many years for the completion of a rail line linking Armenia and Azerbaijan, All That Passes By... is a film about waiting, the suspended time where dreams, hopes and regrets flourish. Beautifully filmed by DiCicco and brilliantly edited by Iva Radivojevic (Evaporating Borders, RIDM 2014), this stationary journey lingers on dusky landscapes, the better to capture the hearts of people.
