"Revox - A Tale of Phantoms" plays with the hyper-realistic quality of dummy head microphone recordings, challenging our acoustic perception. Like Paul Stiller, Astride Schlaefli and Christian Kuntner are sound collectors, sound tinkerers and sound artists. They take us into their world and bring ghosts to life. Together with them, the Collectif barbare discovers a new form of performance. A voice over headphones tells us about the life of Paul Stiller, the greatest sound engineer in film history. One day he discovers a 'sliver of silence' at the heart of an old recording. He investigates the phenomenon and finds sound documents of his wife who disappeared 30 years ago. Paul Stiller's life comes apart at the seams. "Revox" is a film noir for the ears.
