An essayistic portrait of a city, Białystok, a search for the origins of a different political order through re-ordering the images in the cinema. Following Dziga Vertov, Johannes Gierlinger creates a cinematic city that doesn’t exist as such, maybe once rudimentarily did in the past, and possibly will in the future—between what has never entirely become established, and what lives on as utopia in people’s minds.
