On a mountain on Lesbos there is an abandoned landfill with two large craters. The craters are overflowing with life jackets that wash up on land. A worker is the sole resident of this forsaken place which resembles an alien planet.

8th Continent

In Lesvos island an old abandoned dump lies on a mountain with two big craters. The craters are overflown by thousands of life jackets from the refugee waves. A worker is the only inhabitant in this place that resembles an alien planet or a new continent.

This graveyard of life jackets constitutes a modern monument of our absurd world. It does not only represent the aftermath of this massive population movement in the 21st century. It also haunts us with images that dig deeply into our own existence and carry a universal life meaning that goes beyond the daily news. Cast & crew in attendance
