About this title

Synopsis:

Film es la unica incursion de Samuel Beckett en el cine. Escrita en 1963, se rodo en Nueva York durante el verano de 1964; la dirigio Alan Schneider y la protagonizo Buster Keaton. Para el rodaje, Beckett realizo su unico viaje a los Estados Unidos, en julio de 1964.La pelicula no tiene dialogos y solo un sonido -un ligero "B!sssh !" -, parte de la teoria de Berkeley "Esse est percipi," o sea "ser es ser percibido": aun cuando se suprime toda percepcion exterior -ya sea esta animal, humana o divina- permanece la auto-percepcion. Sin embargo, pese a este principio filosofico, la pelicula, como toda la obra de Beckett, contiene elementos de comedia. Buster Keaton desempena el papel de un hombre que, huyendo por una calle practicamente desierta, se introduce en un portal, sube por las escaleras del edificio y entra en una habitacion -probablemente la suya-, donde cuidadosamente borra toda realidad exterior. Corre la cortina, tapa el espejo, echa al gato y al perro, cierra con llave la puerta, cubre la jaula del pajaro y la pecera y empieza a romper las fotos de su pasado. Sin embargo, el problema de la auto-percepcion sigue insoluble.
