It is an imaginary journey inspired in the industry of mass tourism, entertainment, the elderly and the concept of a journey with no return. Filmed in super 8 in 1980 in a cruise as part of the unrealised project “By boat, by train and by plane”, the video, recently edited, presents itself as a story of five episodes: Goodbye, Initiation Ritual, Sweets&Enjoyment, Enigma and Uploading.
The video starts with the farewell of the passengers on board, afterwards they join us for a tour on the boat through a processional ritual through the halls, a cake banquet and a dance in the ballroom. To these cheerful and crowded scenes, follow others more silent with the hallways full of luggage that will afterwards be landed by the crew.
