Paradise Later

Il paradiso dopo
by Ascan Breuer 2010 13'

Indonesia today. A boat slowly travels down a large river sur- rounded by nature. What emerge from the flow of images cut by black-out sequences are the signs of human civilization: piles of garbage cover the riverbanks, trash hangs from trees, a city skyline on the horizon. While an off-camera voice narrates excerpts from Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness, we enter a world invaded by refuse and garbage, where fishermen cast their nets in the hope of catching something, children play in the water, and goats graze for food. Previewed at the 2010 Berlin Festival.<%YOUTUBE=9cGyuQq-bTA%>
