This article addresses Zepo as an extended reflection -a 'metapicture' - on the material conditions by which its sand pictures are made. It examines the film's self-reflexive gestures by tracing its visual-narrative motifs of traces on surfaces (blood spots, footprints), together with covering layers and depth (breakable ice, trappings under snow).
