Un contenidor simularà l'aeronau

Mariona Moncunill

The video "Un contenidor simularà l’aeronau"[A container will simulate the aircraft] was carried out for Rodalies 4 of Xarxa Transversal.

The project takes as title a sentence taken from the instructions from Civil Defence to the volunteer actors of the drill that took place in the Pyrenees - La Seu d'Urgell Airport on October 20, 2011. These instructions explained them that a container will represent the crashed plane. This anecdotal detail and the fact that is written in future tense refers to the simulated and programmed characteristic of the facts and to the representational condition of the most iconic item of the action: the crashed airplane. The video wants to rebuild the drill through interviews to some of its main characters, treating ambiguously the simulated nature of the emergency.
