The Great Personal is an experimental film made on hand processed 16mm film resembling a typical home film from the 20th century. The film depicts typical imagery of northern European tourist activities in the Mediterranean from a romantic perspective. This typical individual adventure we might as well witness via social media channels is narrated by deep voice-overs that have adjusted their vocabulary according to the depth of the ideology behind the imagery. The film could be described as a post-structuralist, iconoclastic yachting film about the glamorized individualistic approach in today's narrative and reality media, born out of bourgeois vanity.
