Germany 2007 90 mins. In German

An extended essay focused on that smallest thing permeating our everyday lives, DUST uses interviews with a wide range of industrial workers, professional cleaners, meteorologists, artists, and others to evoke a sense of the sublime as the film takes on far-reaching strains of reflection about something which most of us never give a second thought. “Bitomsky’s dense, quicksilver voiceover, sense of philosophical depth, healthy good humor, and wry intellectual poetry make this journey from microscopic to macrocosmic a meditation on the splendor of the futility of existence.”—Film Comment.
