Open City Documentary Festival: Dead Slow Ahead + Q&A with director

26 Jun 2016

This screening is followed by a Q&A with the director.

Presented in partnership with East End Film Festival.

An enormous shipping freighter called Fair Lady drifts aimlessly across the desolate waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Beneath the grinding, brutal machinery and bruised ocean skies, the ship's anonymous crew toil tirelessly to keep the ship on course. They could be lost, men adrift, or perhaps the last vestiges of a doomed species. Part dystopian sci-fi, part documentary tone poem, multi-award-winning Dead Slow Ahead is a hypnotic, immersive one-of-a-kind cinematic experience.

Dead Slow Ahead, dir. Mauro Herce, Spain 2015, 75 mins. Tagalog with English subtitles.
