Blank reproduces the sterile conditions of a genetic laboratory of molecular medicine. The room, the bodies and cells of the animals are subject to the strictest controls; everything has been created specially.

In the film you will pass through a six-minute animal behavoir experimental setup and participate on different levels. This experimental short-film reconstructs from an artistic perspective an experiment in which mice with Alzheimer’s disease fail – even after repeated training – to remember where the island is concealed under the surface of the white water in a white tub. They are used to test whether new substances can repair the defects in the brain.
