If you're in NYC between May 11th and May 17th, Daniel Cockburn's brilliant experimental flick will be playing a limited engagement at the ReRun GastroPub Theater (tickets and screening times) in Brooklyn and you can win a pair of tickets. It's about doors, a conscious archive, and a decoding room among other things and we LOVED it! Read on for details and trailer.

A meta-detective story about a reclusive woman who searches for meaning in the mysterious documents that keep appearing to her. Her investigation begins when she finds a tape recording of a man giving a bizarre lecture. Calming and sinister at the same time, he instructs how to "get where you need to go". Is this a random find, or a message to her? Another strange document presents itself, and another. Swiftly her home becomes an archive brimming with enigmatic texts, images and sounds. She forms deep connections with the people contained in the documents – the Lecturer, the Prisoner, the Inventor - each of them, like her, struggling with the unknowable laws of their own worlds. But the organizer becomes the organized when her meticulous system turns on her. The archive is a trickster which threatens to pull her mind apart. She must make a final choice: is she a free agent, or just a tool of the archive?

This might be a reach, but I see elements of A.E. Van Vogt's Quest For The Future.
