Villa Empain is a single, unique piece of Art Déco and Bauhaus located in Brussels.Its atmosphere is strange and full of wonders. The camera touches gently upon textures, as if to glimpse the moments they witnessed. There is a secret to unveil, but as with every good secret it evades us, it is elusive, we can never grasp it. This experimental short film is an attempt to find out about something that we cannot put our fingers on. (Katharina Kastner)
