"The Art of Disappearing" is an unknown story of a Haitian vodou priest, Amon Fremon, who visited the People’s Republic of Poland in 1980. Poland was a strange place for him. Even the rain was louder, as if in a land of deaf people. People gathered in queues for hours but they never spoke to each other. A romantic poet Adam Mickiewicz led him to the underworld and helped him contact Polish spirits. He survived the martial law period when the evil white water came from the sky, water that could not satisfy thirst. Finally he decided to perform a great vodou ceremony to free the Polish people from evil forces and start a revolution similar to the one that took place in Haiti 200 years ago. Film is a metaphisical view on time of socialism through the eyes of a stranger form a different culture.
