A voyage with an undefinite durance, a travelling alongside of political borders and mental boundaries. Guilo, the checkpoint of the jerusalem quarter of the same name, is never passed. The border is the point of return, the isolation, the impermeable, the moment without passage. In an continous flow the travel seems to reach a certain destination, with the regalia of an ordinary journey, braking and speeding up, alongside the curves and the straight lines of the road and through tunnels. Hardly noticeable arise timeless inversions while driving through these tunnels, and you’ll be captured by the feeling to be in a spatial and temporal labyrinth.
