Dead Slow Ahead

A mesmerising cinematic experience, Dead Slow Ahead is documentary reimagined as horror science-fiction. Tracking the journey (or aimless drift?) of a freighter, its rhythms of work, machinery and the ocean are part commentary on post-industrial capitalism swallowing its workforce, part grotesque-romantic portraiture, part contemplation on what the end of the world might look like, with the last mechanical vestige of man following commands without purpose, and clanking along to nowhere. Hypnotic, extraordinary, terrifying.opencity-logo
