Drift is a non-narrative collage of images, actions and cliches. In the studio people mouth the words of common cliches or act out simple sight gags. On the street facades, flags and graveyards are framed in the same ironic and questioning way. The video is about how the self awareness of the medium affects its possible meaning.
