Tongue-in-cheek, early Greenaway short reflects the incredibly meticulous encyclopedic nature of his early films.

An examination by a group of rival academics to remake an incomplete and largely missing film allegedly made by Tulse Luper. The film in question is called Vertical Lists, or Vertical Features, which shows vertical objects like posts, poles, tree trunks etc in a domestic landscape.
