Poster The Thames Barrier



The Thames Barrier

'The Thames Barrier' (2019) is a British-Dutch docufictional featurette about work and aspirations. It is a wandering sense-stimulating film journey, an experimental film with sci-fi/fantasy-influences flowing through the external and internal worlds of newspaper deliverer Moreno and (South) London.

Tagline
In the free world only Sun rises for free

Synopsis
Moreno (Jorge Martinez) lives in a backyard shed and has just arrived in London. To make ends meet, he distributes daily newspapers in South London. Moreno has intense dreams of entering a shiny shimmering world across the river Thames: he doggedly follows his spirit animal (Rocky) through London’s hidden nature towards the skyscraper shore of the Thames.
