Passing Ship
UK 1994

On the left side of this video diptych sequences of a typical Hollywood movie of the genre “airplane catastrophy” are showing, while on the right side a man liying in a bath tub talks about how he gradually came to terms with the actual trauma of such a catastrophy and his fear of water. Not only by the contrast of documentary interview and fictional processing of the same topic, but by the redundancies of sound and images between both “panels”, telling itself and being told has come to the point.
