Ms Providenskiya – Manon Bovenkerk

Ms Providenskiya, Manon Bovenkerk, (2003), 00:02:17

Providenskiya is a small port in the furthest corner of Siberia. So is the motorship MS Providenskiya named after this desolate place, or does the name of the ship refer to ‘providence’ and is the arrival of the ship an act of some higher power? Certainly it carries a cargo that is not of this world. As the ship is at anchor outside the harbour, something tries to get ashore. It finds a crack in the wall, travels through the plumbing, and sings in the powerline.
