The Sailor

Giovanni Giaretta

A sailor dreams of a homeland he has never had: day after day he constructs his new native land, shaping it to the substance of his soul. This video deals with the notion of what we call 'home' and 'foreign' while simultaneously dealing with issues related to language and translation.
