Adapted from the Max Frisch novel "Der Mensch erscheint im Holozän, Man in the Holocene". When the novel was published back in 1979 the New York Times called it a "brilliant parable of immense importance". It tells the story of an old man, isolated from the outside world in a little mountain village in Ticino, Switzerland, who fights against oblivion. From books that he has there he cuts out texts and images about geology and geological history to fix and arrange them on the walls of his cottage. Frisch adds these articles to his novel to assemble human history with individual decay.
