This third box set in the series contains Leth's travel films. 'Images have a primary quality for me - ahead of the story,' Leth once said. 'I like it when the observed subject can be perceived breathing through the image.'

In the latest film, Leth travels back to Aarhus, the city of his childhood, whose familiar locales are likewise captured in the director's trademark tableau style. In between, we find his Haitian films. For years, Leth has lived in Haiti, a country that enthrals him and gives him the 'feeling of personally delving beneath the surface, into chaos.' Chaos is reflected in the raw, documentary style of these films, a far cry from his American postcards or Chinese notebook, confronting unknown territory with fresh eyes and no agenda.
