"In Dominic Angerame's latest film, PREMONITION, we are confronted with a subtle despair and ominous ambiguity suspended in the clarity of a cool early morning.
(...) Despite its sadness, PREMONITION does not judge modernity and its gargantuan celebrations of engineering but, on the contrary, admires them, in the aesthetic sense of the word, as would any traveller who, at the bend in the road, discovers the enormity of a landscape, satisfying his ego and leading him to ask new questions about the particularities of all these greatnesses.
Modernity, what has become of your motorways? You dominated us, then you disappeared. The arches and ribs of your rails seemed so real to us. The cigarettes smoked provocatively under your apron. The tennis games played in your shadow. You were close to where we worked. The cry of the seagulls echoed through your tangles.
(...) The film hides its meaning, which appears and disappears like the tide. Fragment of a circle, abstract. Near the bridge. The motorway turns. Teenagers have spray-painted it. A jogger strides along it. And empty cars as an indictment: now that we no longer care, what does it all mean?
PREMONITION is not about abandoned motorways, but rather an inventory of a desire and a defunct relationship." Ronald F. Sauer.
