Seafarers | Chicago Reader


British documentarian Jason Massot produced, directed, and shot this melancholy rumination on the loneliness of the long-distance sailor. A Swede deserted by his family, a disillusioned Polynesian, an embittered Liberian, and an angry, profane Croat all work different boats but share the psychic scars of their interminable sea travel. Their sense of solitude is so entrenched that they derive scant pleasure from leave in Rotterdam, whose industrial docks, cafes, shops, trams, and downtown streets seem weirdly underpopulated. Will Oldham provides the video's haunting acoustic-guitar score. In English and subtitled Croatian and Tuvaluan. 78 min.
