While on a trip with Ivan M. Jirous, Jan Ságl came across several dozen metal printers’ plates hanging out in the open landscape. A much-needed product in samizdat circles, the plates were being used to scare away birds. The film shows a sun-drenched landscape with scattered silver points arranged in random constellations like some kind of land-art. It is loosely inspired by Zorka Ságlová landscape interventions, which Jan Ságl regularly helped to realize and document in his photographs, and in which a large role is played by the juxtaposition of the landscape with objects of a more geometric nature.
