"A love story in shifting colors, illusive light and sentimental songs from the year 1968. A movie about the movement of desire across the distances of geography and time. A meditation on the manner in which books, letters and other written or printed communications might both produce and mediate that distance. A shelf of books, an inventory of pigments. A question of language and a statement about time. Condensations upon several occasions." —David Gatten
