Snailtrails Slakkesporen

The film of Snailtrails.
Snailtrails is a surreal portrait of a day and night from the life of an elderly somewhat confused lady. In her perception Time and Space are elastic. She undertakes an odyssey across the city, an amalgamate of Rotterdam, Berlin and Tokio. Through her confused eyes we see this metropolis: cars are flat-irons, pedestrians are shrimps and the bumper cars at the fair take the form of children's shoes. The chaos of the city, its bustling alleys, parks and shopping malls, appears to correlate to the chaos in her head.
