Intimate and personal portrait of the Belgian film archive, CINEMATEK. The film talks of cinema and time in the form of a visual symphony in which a hundred films partake in a unique journey.

Pieter Bruegel’s painting Landscape with the Fall of Icarus and Belgium form together the backdrop against which various people diligently examine the question: “TO LOOK, what does it mean?” A “drolatic” film diary.

A dramatic action in miniature. A man enters his flat, after which an unexpected interaction takes place.
