WAITING FOR RESCUE

I’ve driven all night…
by Tiago Araújo


I’ve driven all night through a grainy landscape, on a motorway with dim and orangey lights. a cinematographic melancholy, impossible to explain without appealing to that particular technique of images, made me travel more miles than the ones needed to arrive home, instinctively, till the music was over, as one who possesses only an aesthetic purpose for his life and rapidly uses it up, aware that euphoria is the beginning of despondency. between the departures and the sleepiness through which I prevail, the route proceeds along an autumnal region where night fell early. amongst all the doors, only one leads to the sand onto which I became used to throwing my body, waiting for rescue or for dawn, whichever comes first, whatever your hands will offer for the rest of my days.

I think this poor boat may have waited for too long...

It looks to be in a state beyond recovery...

Oui, mélancolie cinématographique me rappelant l'ambiance des films italiens des années 60. J'adore

Not sure about this shot - a lot of foreground.

Perhaps a bit of rescue would be useful here...
