The Teenage Tasteless Tourist Tape

The city presents itself as a site of decay and disenfranchisement. People are either alone or fighting over unknown issues. Couples argue in public and the abandoned lie unconsciously in the streets. A mob forms spontaneously,waiting for an explosion. In the mean time everybody is taking pictures. Escape from the city is no longer a remedy since nature disappeared .It's been degraded to a mystical landscape in which one encounters unicorns, witches and lonely rangers: runaway horses, tourist guides and an old lady selling paintings of the forest in the middle of the woods.
From the city to the wilderness and back again. The man with the hat sees the light at the end of the tunnel and the shadows that await him. In reality he is stuck in a traffic jam caused by a deadly car accident. Rebirth without enlightenment. Instead: Children enchanted by the purposelessness of their play and a mad saint who's aware of him being watched.
Almost a fairy tale.
