In Free Fall \ Dir. Hito Steyerl
In Free Fall, Dir. Hito Steyerl (2010) / (32 min)
Screening after the Shorts 1 World From Above.
In Free Fall incorporates a trio of works: Before the Crash, After the Crash and Crash, which tell the story of the current global economic crisis through the example of an aeroplane junkyard in the Californian desert. The aviation junkyard reveals the anatomy of all sorts of crashes: both fictional and real. This is an investigation of planes as they are parked during the economic downturn, stored and recycled, revealing unexpected connections between economy, violence and spectacle.
