The Nature Theatre of Oklahoma embarks on a trans-Atlantic sea voyage. Their main objective is to make a film about a former member of the theatre company who has mysteriously disappeared. Their creative experiment installs a regime of control that permeates every single part of the ship and which is much more ambiguous and even less sensible than traditional hierarchical forms of power. This film essay, building on Kafka’s Amerika and Guattari’s Project for a Film by Kafka, breaks film language down to the point where it decomposes into interwoven gestures, emotions, glances, voices, sounds and fragments of the story, and hints at the possibility of escape from the system of power into a world of uncertainty, openness, and change.

“I came upon a room full of screens, monitored by officials from the Theatre…There were recordings of things happening at that moment, or that had already happened, or that hadn’t yet. They say they can’t know which is which.”

The artistic duo of Silvia Maglioni and Graeme Thomson focuses primarily on the creation of film, video installations and performance art. Their films are characterised by intermedia drama, exploring the boundaries of film language, and the influence of the ideas of Gilles Deleuze and Félixe Guattari. Their film Facs of Life (2009), which pays homage to Deleuze’s philosophical legacy, was screened under the Opus Bonum section at the Jihlava IDFF six years ago.
