New places. Now new locations. New places. New locations. The same journey. We are searching for something. We are searching.... We don't know how to frame the erotic. I don't know exactly how you find it. It's not a definition, that's not it. It's about the search itself. Finding some moments in memory and in the present. We study woman, we study women in different places, in Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, in Belém, Panama City, Jacmel, Dakar, in Manila. Watching her, her legs, her shoulders, her skin, her hands, her eyes and her mouth. We watch the unknown smile. The new smile. The difference, the little nuance that makes it different. That's what we're searching for. It's indefinable, it's unclear. We don't strive to be clever.

Lars von Trier, who challenged Leth in »The Five Obstructions« is creative producer.
