Sleepy Ride to the Airport

The short film was inspired by a nighttime cab ride to Athens airport. A car ride, as French speed theorist Paul Virilio writes in his book “Driving Driving Driving…”, is a cinematic experience for a passenger. The windshield is the screen, and the gear engaged affects the speed of the images. A drive at night becomes a film, the car an abstract object.
