with Liam Gillick, Douglas Gordon, Carsten Höller, Pierre Huyghe, Rirkrit Tiravanija

This film is a sequel to Vicinato (1995). Four actors engage in a conversation written by six artist friends and collaborators. These four actors have often worked together and their longstanding relationship influences not only the script but the feeling of the film, which follows the characters while they negotiate their relationships with each other and the world. They drift aimlessly through the hills overlooking the French Riviera. As they converse, a fifth voice, an automaton, mechanically narrates the story. It speaks for the characters, defines the different points of view, repeats some of their lines and speaks the stage directions.
