Synopsis

On the banks of the Dead Sea, there where God is said to have destroyed the sinful cities of Sodom and Gomorrah, the earth is once again opening up; the sea level is dropping by one meter per year, and there on the banks of the salt lake, date trees and massage parlors are being consumed by sinkholes. While the name of the lake itself seems to be transforming into a self-fulfilling prophecy, tremendous industrial facilities twinkle at night at the site where Sodom once existed. Tourists feel their way around in the waters in search of cures, and behind the beaches, excavators are digging up the land in preparation for the next luxury hotel. A kaleidoscopic look at a dystopian place where people perpetually revolve around themselves.

Sinopsis

Na obalama Mrtvog mora, gdje je, kako kažu, Bog uništio griješne gradove Sodomu i Gomoru, zemlja se ponovo otvara; nivo mora opada za metar godišnje, i tamo, na obalama slanog jezera, stabla datulja i salone za masažu gutaju vrtače. Dok samo ime jezera kao da prerasta u ispunjavajuće proročanstvo, ogromni industrijski kompleksi noću svjetlucaju na mjestu gdje je nekada bila Sodoma. Turisti tapkaju u vodama u potrazi za lijekom, a iza plaža, bageri iskopavaju zemlju u pripremi za sljedeći luksuzni hotel. Kaleidoskopska vizura distopijskog mjesta gdje se ljudi kontinuirano vrte u jednoj osi oko samih sebe.
