'In Absentia' is the cinematic reconstruction of a performance which was intended to be staged in Damascus together with Syrian artists. Because the local political situation in Syria increasingly worsened in 2011, the performance never took place as planned. The two directors then decided to re-enact the performance in the Egyptian desert, 1000 km southwest of Syria and in the absence of the Syrian artists. The result is a film that shows the fragility of a human body, and the mirage-like disappearance of humans in politically precarious situations.
