Sleepy Ride To The Airport is a short film inspired by a taxi ride to Athens airport at night. The french speedtheorist Paul Virilio writes in his book "Fahren Fahren Fahren...", that a ride in a car is a cinematic experience for the passenger. The windshield is the screen and the gears influencing the speed of the images. The night is a film and the car an abstract object.Sleepy Ride To The Airport deals with thoughts of the French speed theorist Paul Virilio and raises the question of what the world actually is. A car ride, as Paul Virilio puts it in one of his books, is a cinematic experience for a passenger. The windshield is the screen and the speed influences the movement of the image. The film transfers this projection theme to the question of the form of the world itself.
