"N" the Madness of reason

A Film by Peter Krüger

- Coproducer -

Synopsis
SYNOPSIS

N recounts the story of the Frenchman Raymond Borremans, who left cold Europe for Africa in the mid-20th century. He devoted his life to the creation of the first encyclopaedia of this other world, dreaming of eternal recognition. He died, however, having only reached the letter N.

His restless spirit now drifts around West Africa, caught between life and death, past and present. Into whose dream has he fallen? Why has he returned to the living? An African woman who helps restless spirits find peace tries to lead him towards his destiny.

When confronted with civil war, he is disappointed, shattered and thrown. His encyclopaedic mind bent on drawing borders, on definitions and categorizations finds the contingencies of reality less easy to cope with. Yet Borremans spirit yearns to complete his unfinished task
