Seven hypnotic, fugue-like episodes. Seemingly simple at the beginning, they become increasingly intense until they culminate in a psychological kaleidoscope. Grandfather is silent – is he still alive? A man talks to a wardrobe – why? Absent people creep like ghosts into the lives and conversations of couples and families. They are the lost, the repressed and the missing. Young men shock their mothers – one with love, the other with contempt. It ends with a charlatan who drives naïve sick people to their deaths.
Forest - I See You Everywhere is an anthropological exploration in Fliegauf’s typical micro-realist style. Each episode is filmed in claustrophobic closeness, gripping the viewer’s attention like a magnet, accompanied by feverish dialogue through which the wind of anarchy blows.
