(2022, UK, USA, 16')

Inevitably, strife and misunderstanding take place when two persons so unlike one another meet. This is what happens in Sally Potter’s latest short movie, where an exuberant character – a musician – puts to the test the tolerance of his conductor. A professional cooperation aggrieved by improvisation and virtuosity degenerating in artistic duel.
