Short film, 13 minutes, MPEG. 
Directed by Athina Rachel Tsangari
Starring Marina Gioti
Marina No. 5 is the first episode of Instant Instants: instant recordings of instant encounters that took place in China and South East Asia, from May to August 2008.
The title for each Instant Instant is constructed with the name of its main subject, exact time duration of the recording, time zone, and latitude/longitude of its exact location.
In Marina No. 5, we follow Marina one summer night in her quest to find a bottle of chinese vodka in the stifling streets of Shanghai.
Once the series is completed, all Instants, with lengths varying from five seconds to fifteen minutes, will be intermigrating across randomly programmed "mix and pix" playlists. Each viewing will produce an instantly new deposit of places, senses, relations, and questions.
