Five staging posts on a journey: five borderlands, five limbos. Five warehouses for souls.
‘Flight’ is a new feature documentary by Vaughan Pilikian. Shot in during 2015-16 at five locations on the chaotic and dangerous overland route through Europe, it revisits the founding event of our era. Eschewing polemic and hyperbole, the film bears witness at ground level. It weaves its music of images to the soaring maqaams of Iraqi saxophonist Amar Alaw, in search of something both more intimate and more universal.
