The Icelandic composer Jóhann Jóhannsson, author of unforgettable soundtracks such as those of Sicario (2015) or Arrival (2016), worked on his debut feature film, when we left us too soon in 2018. Filmed in 16 mm., black and white, Jóhannsson imagines a futuristic world, solitary and beautiful, in which the human race is making way to the monuments of its presence. Narrated by the actress Tilda Swinton, this is a singular and Kubrickesque visual and sonorous voyage.
