 In this short of albanian artist Driant Zeneli, four boys and a dog, lost on the horizon, float in an alien, dark and silent environment. Clinging to each other, they find a path to regain the line that apparently divides the sky and the earth. Losing the horizon can be confusing and frightening, but it is also an opportunity to get back into the game and find new directions. Zeneli’s moving images bring dreams that have always been part of the collective imagination to life. Utopian undertakings that defy physical law, by ordinary people or Zeneli himself, reveal a performative aspect fundamental to the film’s veracity.
