Above Us Only Sky Arthur Kleinjan

Films index A to Z

Sometimes a short film comes along that’s able to capture an entire world in just a few minutes. This uncommon filmic investigation is one of them, transporting us with surprising ease from the 2010 eruption of Eyafjallajökull in Iceland to the factory run by Wittgenstein’s father, to the impact of the Beatles on Czech youth. Based on brilliant associations between ideas and visual synchronicities, Above Us Only Sky celebrates the curiosity, moments of extraordinary chance, revelations and intuitions that form the basis of our understanding of the world. Past, present and possible futures melt together in a waking dream: an original look at the deep connections between the 20th century and the present day.
