Acouple of improvised actors are travelling through the Atacama Desert. They are seen deep in conversation, about music amongst other things, or washing their car. By setting up his camera in this Chilean no-man’sland, or printing photos of it, Colomer has opted to film the absurd. These staged scenes of roaming the world, divided into five episodes shown in a continuous loop, are rooted in a quotation from Guy Debord: “Wandering in the open country is naturally depressing”.
