A film that follows a group of anonymous passengers crossing a river on a ferry. Between conversations to pass the time and sleep, time runs out, or is suspended, on the journey.
In Greek mythology, Aqueronte is one of the rivers that separate the world of the living and the dead and through which Charon, Hades’ ferryman, sails, transporting the souls of the recently dead. There is in this transport a suspension of time, an effect similar to the one that the cinema of Manuel Muñoz Rivas leads us to. The Spanish river Guadalquivir is the Aqueronte and the ferry boat full of cars and passengers, which navigates it, the barge of Charon. This film has within itself a thick fog that induces a state of sleepiness and for moments we inhabit the limbo of mythology (Carlos Ramos)
