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. The film transforms the visionary pavilion structure by German architect Ulrich Müther located in Binz, Germany from 1981 into a futuristic home.
