Drifts (Post-production)

Synopsis

The beginning of the twenty-first century is marked by a contradictory intersection between the transformation of the global economy and the revolution in new technologies. These two disparate new realities have disrupted customs and traditions and are now bearing witness to different drifts, some with times that anesthetize and others that excite and exhilarate, yet without knowing where they are heading.

The place portrayed in Derivas (Drifts), associated with the frontier of the sea and fishing boats, begins to be occupied by nomadic flows of people whose interests are very different to the origin of this place, completely redrawing and resituating new events.


Director’s Notes

Drifts arises after reflecting on Pasolini’s vision of capitalism: when consuption has been established in our societies as an ideological system, the possibility of returning to certain social attitudes of conscience and community becomes practically impossible.

With this project I wanted to show two worlds that converge in the same space and that, at the global level, are very recognizable within our contemporary reality: that of the local people who have seen their economy transform away from the sense of origin of their town, and that of tourists, who travel through places superficially, without inhabiting them. Two realities that coexist and in which I have tried to present, not so much melancholic or longing states of “another better time”, but a social structure that no longer seeks to build “good citizens”, but rather good sellers and consumers.

Thus, this system of reality provokes a singular state, a sort of drift, like a transit through a flow of energy that takes away the consciousness of the first purpose of things, more than as a wandering aimlessly: listen to megaphones of parks attractions in a space of great natural wealth; prepare industrial bread in an environment where time is long; eat frozen fish from a distant continent in a fishing village … Local people and tourists engaged in a confusing and contradictory time in which what was sought and offered in the imaginary has been replaced by substitutes, illusory patches that, however , make us believe that the experience lived is unique, authentic and genuine, always hand in hand, yes, of codes of action whose main purposes are those of recurrent consumption.
