AQUERONTE

Onboard a ferry, a group of passengers cross a river from one side to the other. Manuel Muñoz Rivas’ reflexive, oneiric cine-voyage unfolds as a series of elliptical vignettes in a gently shifting landscape of light and shadows. Through a vaporous fog and half-heard voices we encounter a cast of characters suspended in a floating space. On the water time is expanding and the destination is deferred – motion itself, and the transporting power of images becoming, perhaps, the only certainty.
