Luc Perez, Denmark, 2020

15 min.DK/Short fictionAnimation

Marstal 1913. Captain Albert Madsen has apocalyptic dreams. Dreams where men from his city suffer a cruel death on ships that are lowered or set on fire. Albert sees it for himself and he knows it will happen. As a captain, once in a dream he saw his own ship, Princess, perish. At that time, he could run from the galley to the helm with all his might and prevent the accident from happening. Albert Madsen is doomed to await World War I and the fulfillment of his nightmares in powerlessness and agonizing loneliness. Albert believes in man, in unity, community and the balance of everything. He struggles with a dizzying sense of the end of the world because of his visions.
