Waste no. 2 Wreck
director: Jan Ijäs
original title: Waste no. 2 Wreck
running time: 9 min.
synopsisA political visual poem about the current situation on the island of Lampedusa. The sharp contrast between the wrecks of refugee boats and the “most beautiful beach in the world according to Tripadvisor.com” disappears in a foggy mist of associations, melancholy ironic narration, grainy lyrical images, and ambient music.
