Part ethnographic portrait and part science fiction postcard, Alluvion is a story of a family holiday, and a study of touristic colonialism and cultural apocalypse. A father and his grown children, of unnamed nationality, make their way through a Turkish coastal landscape where ancient and modern histories transmute into material spectacle and the nights are filled with incessant entertainment. Amidst remains of mutated cultures, bodies are caught in rituals of sun worship, stagnating in a state of passivity. The relaxedness is laced with darkness. The exotic calls to be deromanticised. The sense of loneliness within the family grows. Disco-lights permeate all, and turquoise toenails float above the city. Millennia old columns are submerged in swimming pools. At a shipyard on the edge of town, a group of men are building an ark, labourers actively asserting meaningful influence upon their surroundings, they may or may not achieve salvation as the film and the world around them all are disintegrating toward an Atlantean End.
