Blade Runner meets Balearics
The twice-yearly phenomenon of Palma Cathedral’s ‘spectacle of the eight’; the natural springs of Ses Fonts Ufanes in Campanet; the underground cave labyrinth near Porto Cristo and the stunning underwater world surrounding Mallorca are some of the wonders captured on film by the Balearic government.
Two new videos released to promote winter tourism were inspired by the recent movie release of Blade Runner 2049. The videos begin with an actor voicing words spoken by the Roy Batty replicant character in the original Blade Runner movie, delivered in the pouring rain: “I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe…”
Part of the Balearic Tourism Agency’s ‘Better in Winter’ campaign, the videos are a moving reminder of the beauty of the islands in the cooler months, and they coincide with the announcement of a new airline, Airlines Balearics, coming soon to Mallorca.
