In this homage to Chris Marker's Sans Soleil, a globe-trotting cameraman sends letters, postcards and videos from his more than 38 years of travel to his former colleague and lover. She shares them with us in an intimate voice-over, as he reflects on his experiences and reframes them for a present in which democratic instability, climate catastrophe, runaway technology and a global pandemic threaten the future of the planet. Despite a sense of hopelessness, everywhere he “sees images for a film I can make.” His restless need to document humanity is his own personal form of resistance.Culled from the filmmaker's personal archives, the story takes us from North Korea to Haiti to Bolivia to Peru to New York and Seattle, weaving through a mosaic of conflict and beauty and contemplation.
