NEW DOCS

This surreal short film takes us on board a massive cruise ship. A series of stationary shots illuminates an astounding maze of infrastructure—stairwells, dining rooms, multilevel pool decks, tiny cabins in a row—embellished throughout with thousands of people. Entertainment is meticulously calculated. Guests partake in waterslides and zip lines, competitions and organized dances, moving through the attractions in prescribed succession, while staff members attend to the exceptional demands of this manufactured ecosystem. The sheer number of passengers and their engagement with a host of bizarre rituals underscore the oddities of modern pleasure and the human capacity to consume.  ST
