Homage to Vladimir Petek's 1963 film "Encounters". Playing gender roles, ways of perceiving a woman as an object, a man as an observer, and finally by reversing those roles. The authors make an audio recording of the editing process that gives an insight into the process of their interventions in image and rhythm. The film was shot and edited through mutual interaction, communication and observation of two people in a romantic relationship.
