A short absurd fairy tale with references to Lewis Caroll, Hans Richter, and George Lucas, taking place on a historic site of modernism, Oscar Niemeyer‘s headquarters of the Communist Party of France PCF in Paris. A young figure enters a futuristic building where in the
subterraneous assembly hall he encounters relics of the past and starts projecting the film Rhythmus 21 (1921) by Hans Richter.

Simultaneously on the roof of the building a hooded figure scans the premises’ structure while down below the white concrete overground dome of the hall transforms into the moon.
