Focusing on the methods of brick building, as well as their unique forms, meanings and cultural applications, Farocki explores these processes as nothing less than the building blocks of a society, of societies, by comparison. Seemingly uninflected by intervention or voiceover narration, we pass through 20 intertitles in an hour to dance around a cavalcade of colour, movement and sound, each nodule sliding in with constructivist precision.

  • “The film shows us that certain modes of production require their own duration and that differences between cultures can be shown in brick time,” - Ute Holl.
