Schneemann’s cat, Kitch, which was featured in works such as Fuses, was a major figure in Schneemann’s work for almost twenty years. The moving conclusion to the autobiographical trilogy was originally shot on Super-8. The film documents the routines of daily life whilst time passes, a relationship winds down and death closes in: filming and recording stopped when the elderly cat died.

The soundtrack mixes personal reminiscences with ambient sounds of the household, and includes the original text used for Schneemann’s 1975 performance Interior Scroll.
