In 1926, avant-garde filmmaker Man Ray filmed a cine-poem in the southeast of France, and called it Emak Bakia, which is a Basque expression meaning “leave me alone.” So filmmaker Oskar Alegria decided to embark on a playful exploration of that film and its title. Was it an inscription on a gravestone, or some other place? The discoveries and detours along the way make for a charming, fanciful road movie about chance, serendipity and the journey being more important than the destination.

With short: Emak Bakia by Man Ray with live accompaniment by Lungs Face Feet.
