A panoptic filmshot captures the Mont Ste-Victoire, the place being significant in the history of modern Western painting for the ideas on space and depection, matter and time as developped by the painter Paul Cézanne. The autobiographical text by the Romantic poet Willam Wordsworth tells of a “spot of time”, a place in nature that makes a certain temporal experience possible. The film tries, averse to aesthetical hierarchies, to master the details of that in which it is embedded: images, their history and their meaning.
