North American Premiere
In the mid-Twentieth Century, Britain sent surveyors out to map the world. Using their aerial photographs and the super 8 film they took of their expeditions, we explore colonialism and its consequences, as they are being played out today, in a hillside village in Kenya.
Vera, a private detective retired to the village where she grew up as shepherdess, and Pera, the know-it-all peasant of many esoteric skills, are the last remaining leaf-players - both in the autumns of their lives, still strongly blowing into leaves. Josip is an amateur inventor set out to decode the obscure artistry of leaf-playing. “Unplugged” is an existential allegory about music played on tree leaves, humorously rattling between the most primitive of instruments and the most universal escapism of music. Music has rarely been so offbeat.
In a funny, heart warming and ultimately moving portrait, Mr Fogg offers us an intimate look at a man looking back at his life. Through the idiosyncrasy’s of Eric Fogg’s daily routine we gain a very personal insight into his life, its glories as well as losses.
