To Khosrow Sinai

Each fragment from the cinematic diaries of Michael Pilz both enlightens and thickens the mystery of his cinema.
With Love #3 is dedicated to the memory of filmmaker Khosrow Sinai, prematurely taken by the pandemic in 2020 and who we see playing the piano in an intimate, bright moment.
Pilz gathers images from his travels to Iran and elsewhere and we relearn how to look: waiting for the Sun to rise, the movements of a little child, passing through a canyon – in a few shots, one sketches a world at the border between presence and absence.
