Gerdinand & Corline

Kano (rood) (Canoe (red)), 1993, 16mm to SD, color, silent, 3 min, 28 sec

Stuck in a Dutch ditch in a canoe with no paddles. Nothing much happens. Occasionally the canoe wobbles, or I glance over my shoulder to see when that huge wave will finally catch up and wash me away. The film was slowed down slightly (from 24 to 18 fps) to make it more hypnotic. My father, who was already almost blind at the time, happened to be around and switched the camera on.
