The Table of Departures


Daniel Canty —2010


Fiction / 11 min / HD / 1:78 x 90° / colour

Pacifica. Mute land. Hush now, and you’ll be found.
Quiet day at Pacifica station. The table of departures is void. The sound of trains distantly recalls that of waves. Wandering the marble halls in his immaculate uniform, the controller dreams of invisible traffic. A solitary passenger appears, gleefully intent on disturbing the apparent order.
Welcome to Pacifica.
