The contours of a tennis ball as a way of disputing the entire world. The definition of a line as irrefutable proof that objective knowledge is always just a construction. Taking the complex computer system for determining whether a ball has hit the line in a tennis match as his motif for his film, Theo Anthony paints a perfect scientific portrait of the abyss of technology, knowledge and chaos. The obsession with perfection and accuracy as a race to madness, and images as a comprehensive source of ignorance. (GDP)
