The Lost Road
Project info

The Lost Road—is a meticulously produced cinematic narrative depicting four people on a mysterious journey in a car as they become lost.

On this journey, they encounter many circumstances—loss of
cell phone use; a hitchhiker; a deer in headlights; stray birds
flying overhead and so forth—that allows their sense of dislocation
and creeping alienation to unfold.

Will they change direction, thereby solving the mystery
at the core of this journey?

These photographic montages are literally fictions meant to seem like snapshots of "reality." The implication is that our reality is produced through the limitations of our perceptions.

The Lost Road is a kind of "marvelous reality" or as Alejo Carpentier (the magical realist writer) mentioned, the seizing of the mystery that breathes behind all things.
