Alpenflug (Alpine flight)

Juan Carlos Robles

2006/2 min./DVD/Sound: Theme Alpenflug interpreted by Puts Marie

In the form of a video clip, this recording made by the author, Juan Carlos Robles, prior to that dreadful day of September 11th, 2001, shows us, with surprising spontaneity, how the camera is able to gain access to the pilot’s cabin of a commercial flight with absolute ease.

An ironic and funny story, Alpenflug (Alpine Flight), interpreted by the music band, Puts Marie, sets in motion, to the rhythm of the music, the choreography that two airhostesses interpret using the didactic and robotic gestures characteristic of the rescue and safety instructions whilst the pilots warm up the engines of the aircraft.
