Rutas simultáneas

DV, 10min, VO esp., de-en ST, 2008/2010
Poem: Teresa Delgado, Film: Jakob Kirchheim

"Rutas simultáneas" (simultaneous roundtrip) is treating two superimposed journeys by autobus between Madrid and Valencia, using animated linoprints. The film transmits the apprehension of a crisis, the sellout of landscape and the abandonment of old industries and rural life. The figure of "El Zorro", appearing in the bus-television, is integrated in the perception of desertification. The images are advancing in direction Madrid-Valencia. At the stopover a poem by Teresa Delgado with impressions of the same route, but in contrary direction, is to be heard. The perceptions of landscape and city-periphery are crossing.
