Night Landing At The Charles De Gaulle
July 1 - July 11
Shorts | 2021 | France, Australia | 14 min | Directed by Luke Neher, Sam Gill
A plane takes off, bound for Paris (Charles De Gaulle). A pilot advises his co-pilot on the finer points of speed and altitude management. As the plane makes its approach, ghost transmissions invade the cockpit. The majesty of air travel is momentarily undone by a visit from the past.
Night Landing uses the public domain film Algiers (1938), actual television reportage of the 1994 Air France 8969 Hijacking and a cockpit view of an A350 landing at Charles De Gaulle to unsettle the ghosts in the machine of globalisation.
