In a remote wintry forest, a hunter discovers the mummified corpse of a 40 year old man. A diary is found near the body, detailing the man's everyday thoughts as he commits suicide through self-imposed starvation. Based on an incredible true story, and adapted from the novella 'Until I am a Mummy' by Shimada Masahiko, Peter Liecthi's the Sound of Insects is a stunning investigation into the mystery of the man's enigmatic self-destructive motivations. Taking on his point-of-view, the film presents the notebook entries as stream of consciousness musings on the world around him as his body dissipates, an attempt to piece together the causes of his disillusionment. With luminous cinematography of the vaulting trees that surround his tented tomb, and of hallucinated memories of the cities and people he left behind, the Sound of Insects is a hypnotic and transcendent meditation on how the renunciation of life paradoxically reveals it's beauty.
