Max Luz (DE)
Q.E.D, 2006

film still

Yes Ladies and Gentlemen, the damned libido. You may still find some pleasure in it, but for someone as such as I, it is utterly tiresome. Before you can say knife it leaves you standing there like a complete fool. Certainly, we have analysis, we have discussion, but the more talk about it, the more lascivious that rascally gang becomes. I in contradistinction preach mathematics. Busying oneself with mathematics I say, is the best remedy against cupidity.

A young man W is sitting on a white bench. We watch him try to get his emotions in order by applying a mathematical formula. According to his reflections he meets three women: X, Y and Z...
So far so good, if it wasn’t for damn factor V.
An abstraction in film mixing poetics, mathematics and choreography.
