Three Disappearances And A Song


As the grandfather’s presence in the country becomes increasingly problematic, the mother decides never to touch a camera again. At the same time, the father becomes obsessively convinced of his disappearance. Lost among the absence of images, the film encounters a rare event in 1976, in Montreux: Nina Simone returns to the spotlight.
