An audiovisual dialogue between the filmmaker and a convicted sex offender.

In Still from afar, Eva van Tongeren translates a months-long correspondence between the convicted and incarcerated pedophile Thomas and herself into an audiovisual monologue. The correspondence forces them to adjust their thoughts to the rhythm of each other's letters. His imagination takes her to deserts where westerns are recorded, along the largest trees in the world, to the busy streets of Los Angeles. She sends him fragments of memories that will never be his.
