A Walk with ACM

Years after she had lost track of him, Els Dietvorst tracks ACM down again. Together they walk to the places he stayed and where he was chased away. The film starts with a quote by Walter Benjamin, an extended metaphor for the poetic method, as Baudelaire practised it. ‘Ragpicker and poet: both are concerned with refuse’.

As a documentary filmmaker and artist, that is what you want: to really be on top of your subject, coming as close to the truth as possible.
