RED TAPE - ORBIS TERRARUM

Cel Crabeels
Red tape stuck in straight lines on the floor, ceiling and walls creates an hermetically closed route through them.

Charley Case
A young boy is walking in the desert. Is he lost? Filmed in warm sepia colours, we see him dragging a copy of an antique Greek vase. What is his destiny?

The longer the way, the more difficult he finds it dragging the vase through the loose sand. Will he make it or rather give up?...
