Synopsis

This documentary film is a testament to the enigmatic world of fine-art photographer Rebecca Bathory, who is an urban explorer and documenter of strange and abandoned spaces that exist across Europe, hidden from the general public.

These ruins often contain a cryptic cultural and historical narrative, however Rebecca’s work is not intended to provide a chronological or complete historical archive but rather to capture the inner beauty and mystique of these self-existing parallel universes of forgotteness, through carefully composed images that not only seduce the imagination into the murky and ambiguous world of the surreal, but also splendidly reveal the lingering untold stories behind them and the people who once existed there.
