N.B. Light is part of Life, a concert in collaboration with composer Louis Andriessen with four films.

Note / The artist’s hand slides across the slats of closed Venetian blinds, allowing light into the room. The end of the film shows an uncontrollable burst of light entering the space. Van Warmerdam reacts to the work In the distance, and in Light she gives ‘looking into the distance’ a more abstract form. MvW: ‘To me, the light that blinds you at the end of the film is an anticipation of what eventually awaits us all.’
