Wasteland ? synopsis: Wasteland is a film that consists of short episodes. The structure of the film gives impression of a loose narration, but the episodes have a common thread which becomes clearer throughout the film. The film investigates how our fantasy and imagination is affected by film, and how people in everyday life integrate images from fiction into their own lives. The film attempts to understand how preconceived conceptions influences the way we see and interpret our surroundings.
