Perhaps she arrived too soon. She may have travelled too fast and the city hasn’t had enough time to put itself together. Or maybe she’s travelled for too long, she’s arrived too late, and not even its memory is left. But most likely, she is not here yet.The reaction engine takes its name from the elemental law of physics: every action is followed by an equal, opposite reaction. Therefore, as it thrusts forward, she falls behind. Somewhere between two time zones, between the awake and sleeping mind, between the white noise and voice over of the airplane's intercom, undeclared by the four cardinal points. Conceived under its influence, this film is an aural and visual immersion into the sensation of jet lag.
