In this second installment of a 4-part saga adapted from Odon Von Horvath's novel we are asked to question: when do we feel ourselves being watched? When do we find ourselves watching others? What attracts our attention, catches our eye, and inspires curiosity? When does observation stop being an innocent, passive action? What do we see that forces us to avert our eyes and look way? If Episode One put a picture before your eyes, now we begin to zoom in more closely, to watch as the colors start to run and find the imprecise lines where figures lose their shape. We have a Teacher, a man set against the politics and fascism of his time, and his students, seen as violent, unintelligible mass, out in the wilderness, training for war. And perhaps we also have God watching them, planning, waiting. Everyone is watching each other, but what truly do any of them, do any of us, see?
