Augenblick reflects on what it means to be human in a post human world. | | A giant rock morphs into a mountain in a frozen landscape. In a formal garden, Jean Jacques Rousseau speaks about man and his relationship to society. In a theatrically lit room, three women of various ages announce a range of human beliefs from animism to our present accelerated digital world. Next the women are having tea in a sunny room and conversing about aging, diet and cannibalism. Rousseau reappears briefly and the film returns to the opening shot of a reptilian-like rock floating into space.
