In the trilogy RAIN, SUGAR, EYE thoughts are captured and made visible. Each film is made in one single shot; in which a total shot slowly changes into a close-up. The leading characters in RAIN, SUGAR, EYE are focusing on a detail. Literally seeing another world in this detail causes a fundamental change of their ideas about this reality. The effect of the close-up, which shows a total shot of reality, reveals the clue of the story in a visual way.
A woman looks with a playful gaze at a pile of sugar inside the palm of her hand. Ordinary things like sugar, cigarette smoke and a view from a window undergo a metamorphosis and change into a shiny crystal landscape with clouds passing by.
