Movie Info

Dust is everywhere and ever-present. A conglomeration of the smallest particles, dust nestles in carpets and in attics. It invades laboratories and settles on artworks. It is blown into the air from factory smokestacks and resides in every raindrop. It is fought and cleared away, but in this Sisyphean task, dust is set in motion and returns even as it is being removed.

Dust examines the myriad forms and pathways of dust. It pursues dust to the places where it settles and meets the

Hartmut Bitomsky's Dust makes a pensive study of the title particulate, considering the way we wage a never-ending battle with the tiny specks that gather around us.

How seriously you take Dust will depend not only on your patience, but on how anxious a streaky bookshelf makes you.

Dustâ"the movieâ"is characterized by its clean cinematography, uncluttered compositions, and unceasing dialectic.

Dispassionate disquisition is taken to the extreme in Hartmut Bitomsky's humorless docu.

An incoherent dream-like story that lyrically traces the last half-century in the life of a stressed-out Greek-American filmmaker telling his family's story... .

Dust may not sound like the most mesmerizing film subject, but Dust makes it so. Hartmut Bitomsky's amazing documentary covers its subject almost as comprehensively as dust covers everything itself.
