Français

Un film choral sur l’art, l’identité et la solitude, autour de trois personnages dans les vastes espaces (inconnus, d’où le titre) namibiens. Il s’agit de Sara la rebelle, Anu le musicien et Marcus, un acteur africain-américain. Au-delà, de leur vécu, ils sont tous trois confrontés à une réflexion philosophique : qu’est-ce que cela signifié de vivre dans une Namibie indépendante, en se jouant des frontières entre fiction et documentaire.

English

Overlapping and intersecting lives collide in Namibia: Sara worn out by life and travel returns home from overseas. When she announces to her family that she’s going to commit suicide she sets of a dramatic chain of events; Anu, a dreamy musician, struggles to explain his hallucinations and out of body experiences to his rough-neck buddies across town; Marcus, an African-American actor, estranged from his wife, is in town to play a role in a historical film but he spends his time wandering through the outback searching for significance.
