„This silent portrait of a multipurpose compound that serves as a storage site, maximum security space, and luxury showroom slowly turns into a bizarre black-and-white science-fiction movie with the building as the main character. Despite its abstract nature, the meticulously composed rhythmic combination of austere, carefully framed shots lacking any other context is a fitting architectural commentary on the spirit of our era.“

20TH JIHLAVA INTERNATIONAL DOCUMENTARY FILM FESTIVAL

Different areas of a building are presented in various shots without comment. Several functional properties appear to be combined in this complex. So it is a storage location, maximum security space and prestigious showroom in one. The material was shot in the 2014 built Freeport Luxembourg. The bonded warehouse is a modern center for the storage, handling and the trade of valuables.
