Felice Hapetzeder (Sweden) – Voyage, 2017, 2:30
A group of children navigate on a big square inside a boat-shaped box, not seeing or knowing where to go. Where does this animal live, one child asked. The work consists of the event filmed from two perspectives, one inside filmed by the children and one as seen from the outside. The two starting points talk about positions and reality. How difficult is it not to understand the other perspective without experiencing it first hand. The ship has been used by humanity at all known epochs to travel, transport, capture and escape inhuman conditions.
