AS TO POSTERITY
Doc. expérimental | hdv | couleur | 12:0 | Grèce | 2014
A collection of visual evidence from an Athens of the near future devoid of humans. Its inhabitants have mysteriously disappeared, leaving behind a tableau mourant of concrete, metal and plastic coexisting with with glorious marble and the local flora and fauna. Part science fiction, part archaeological mystery, the work offers a picturesque expedition of the new Greek ruins, through an apposition of findings that serve as hints for the fate of the film’s elusive protagonists, the -conspicuous by absence- Athenians.
