Synopsis
The film takes us on a journey through urban periphery, which, despite being right on our doorstep, is entirely unfamiliar territory for most of us. Think of the late afternoon drive to IKEA. It is a journey through a characterless and anonymous landscape that appears to express nothing whatsoever.
It is as if we had just parked the car on the hard shoulder, climbed over the barrier and fought our way through the brambles to the white areas on our mental street map. The alleged no-man’s land between dual carriageways, business parks, wastelands, flooded quarries and disused railway junctions is inhabited by people who have claimed this territory for themselves, in order to create their own dominion – like archipelagos in an almost incomprehensible void on the borders of the city, liberated spaces full of passion and extraordinary plans.
