    • Synopsis
    • PERSISTENCE is an observational documentary done in an almost entomological sense, whereas man, in his physical actions, becomes the observed. Filmed entirely in Antarctica, the film follows the parallel actions of a single artist, Allan Jeffs, as he moves his ephemeral art installation, Ex+Sistence, at various times and places on the island Greenwich, and the work of scientists around Ecuadorian Scientific Station, Pedro Vicente Maldonado. In the apparent nonsensical work and lack of an immediate goal, playing with the surprise and curiosity of the viewer, the sensory experience is found within the almost abstract white space of Antarctica, assuming the emptiness.
