Dirftless explores notions of nationhood as a form of contemporary confinement, while embracing on the ocean as a public site for artistic interventions. In this artist film, a performer travels across large bodies of water and through several countries, while drifting away in a precarious raft that references makeshift strategies for border crossing. This fictional journey creates a visual narrative, which borrows from migration stories and radical seafaring.
