Pitch darkness, a few hectic seconds in the coarse-grained roar of the Atlantic’s waves, pitch darkness. Black frame, exposed 35-mm film, black frame. The ocean as allegory of life and death. A short work that stirs by means of the essential qualities of analogue film: light, movement, and fleetingness. A film of yearning in the truest sense of the word.
