Video diary of the director Viera Čákanyová, kept while staying at the Polish Antarctic station, where in 2017 she shot the film FREM (2019), whose main character was an artificial neural network. During her stay, the author chats with various artificial intelligences, leading conversations that touch on the nature of film, art, and the meaning of life while also revealing a way of thinking, free from humanity and from an emotionality that forces deep introspection. Footage from the author´s routine everyday life at the station contrasting with lyrical images of the immaculate Antarctic nature, complemented with her own commentary and thoughts provoked by the loneliness of the ice-covered landscape.
