(PDF 225.1 kb)
Matka allegorizes cinematic voice. It denotes the distance crossed in order to scream and the distance separating character from scream. Editing desutures voice from (voice) box, scream from mouth and the character from his silent journey. Cinematically, Sisyphus encounters his body as an absurd excess, a hollow armature to his voice.
