In this experimental film, Arthur Lipsett pieces together his vision of this fragmented world using odds and ends from other people’s image and sound recordings. By juxtaposing these snippets of found film with snatches of comment or dialogue echoing the banality of human communication, Lipsett shows the emptiness of much of what we say or do. N-Zone is one man's surrealist sampler of the human condition.
