About

In <i>Excursions</i> a cast of characters sift through their experiences as travelers in Mexico and Guatemala. A woman's relationship sours in the face of paradise. Two men beg a Mexican woman to sing for their tape recorder. A filmmaker wrestles with self-conciousness. A character from Malcolm Lowry's Under the Volcano fights off delirium tremens. Their voices mingle to inform film footage shot in the area, and reworked on an optical printer. "Real" journal entries mix with faux diaries, sound recorded by travelers on location, and excerpts from a novel to explore the boundary between travel and imperialism.
