IDLE is about an alternate future of humanity. IDLE is a praise of idleness. The film follows a humanoid being in a post-apocalyptic landscape dancing and enjoying leisure while housekeeping robots do their job and unintentionally create works of art. A voice speaks a text based on the essay »Laziness as the Real Truth of Mankind« (1921) by Kazimir Malevich.
