    “Met een combinatie van live-action, animatie en een kinetische sculptuur onderzoekt deze film een mysterieuze kracht die net als een zwart gat of een zeer sterke elektromagneet een verreikende en onweerstaanbare kracht uitoefent op bepaalde voorwerpen en materialen.”

    “Combining live action, stop-frame animation and a kinetic sculpture, HARRACHOV explores the effect of an arcane force that, like a black hole or an immensely powerful electromagnet, exerts a far-reaching and irresistible power upon certain objects and materials, wilfully seducing, centralizing and internalizing them.”
