The Ring

European artists frame the openness of the world in works of art. In gold mines in Africa, slaves dig for precious metal, and the story of the camps in Bosnia can only be told by those who survived them. This documentary epic brings the value of art into direct confrontation with its own extinction. It searches for a lost ring, a sense of connection, mapping at the same time the brokenness of the 90s. And the circle closes fifteen years after the first scene was filmed, 1989 - 2004. This circle is a documentary oddessy that encounters its nemesis in a picaresque philosopher who contemplates nothingness, and an essay that must step past the graves in Burkina Faso and Bosnia, the circle of the life work of the author who has discovered his intimate Ithaca somewere between Slovenia and Scotland, a hideway from the nihilism of the ring, embodying death, gold and apathy, the symbols of the world that survives us
