In this video diary, Tahimik again addresses his three sons whose voices animate the soundtrack, and who he also regularly lets operate the camera. This time the thematic anchor is the 500th anniversary of the Ferdinand Magellan first voyage around the world, which casts a long shadow in advance of what’s to come in 2021 and which motivated the Tahimik family to devise all sorts of symbolic reinterpretations and precautionary counter-propaganda. Longer sequences from a stage performance during a film screening in Japan are combined with travel observations, tree planting actions and a carved wooden Indian bust, which invariably cuts another but yet indomitable figure in the various settings.
