DUST (STAUB) (Germany, 2008, 90 min.)

An eccentric and profoundly informative documentary.                —A.O. Scott, The New York Times

A methodical chronicle about the most commonplace material – ordinary dust – takes us everywhere, uncovers astonishing facts, and, in the end, offers nothing less than a new way to view the world.  It is a look at the pervasive power of dust, with its tiny particles settling in unseen places, as well as its ability to cause illnesses and create the cosmos. This epic documentary is as much about the impossibility of maintaining a clean house, as it is a philosophical essay about life and death. (—Seattle International Film Festival)
In German with English subtitles. Directed by Hartmut Bitomsky. Produced by Heino Deckert.
