  • halibutacid's rating of the film Havarie

    A three-minute found YouTube video stretched to feature length, displaying each of its ~5,400 frames as a discrete object in a sequential relation, while tracing a complex network of political, geographic and affective relations orbiting around a visible, slowly rotating gravitational centre: a tiny boat jammed full of refugees attempting passage to Europe.
