A white galaxy is turning gaily on a black background when it’s addressed by male offscreen voices. The conversation quickly turns to the origin and decline of humanity. The doubts and bad premonitions uttered by the invisible voices form a contrast to the happy teeming image of evolution. David Buob’s latest film is a tribute to the German philosopher and radical pessimist Philipp Mainländer (1841–1876).
