close near the coal-fired power station.(space/time) The smoke clouds are made by the coal-fired power station in Amsterdam (The Hemweg Centrale). The quote told in the film by a male voice is from the novel "The Life and Strange Surprising Adventures of Robinson Crusoe" by Daniel Defoe, written in 1719. The text is an excerpt from page 47: (..) We knew nothing where we were, or what country were we driven to, be it an island or the main, inhabited or uninhabited (..) The film is made from a visionary view of the landscape that has changed over time. And not knowing where we have ended up in this world. Clouds are formed now by smoke, we can no longer tell the difference. The film touches on subjects such as 'the makeable world, time, change, industrialization, the ignorance of humans and the preservation of nature. The film was part of the september 2021 screening series at Acinema Milwaukee, Wisconsin VS and will be part of the Woodland Patter's 24 hour poetry marathon (Milwaukee VS) at the end of january 2022. https://woodlandpattern.org/poetry-marathon
