  • Synopsis

    The moving picture takes the classical theme of the “nude” in a contemporary interpretation as a psychological condition.
    The viewer is confronted with different levels of movements of baring/exposing.
    He becomes very quickly aware, that he did not enter a peep-show, but is disturbing intimacy, the process of emptiness. Emptiness in the sense of meditating.
    The nude is a metaphor. The Inability of Being Nude becomes the inability of exposing one’s entire internal to other people, including those who are most intimate and this could be the viewer himself. This inability is in the same way protecting as separating.
