seven-channel installation, 6’23”, 5’17”, 6’14”, 6’40”, 3’53”, 6’03”, 0’10”, HD, colour, sound, aspect ratio 16:9, loop, ed. 3+2AP, DOP: Tomasz Ziółkowski

A cinematic installation exploring the porous border between fiction and documentary drawing on the idea of expanded cinema. The film takes place on the beach, which is itself a border between culture and nature and in itself acts as a stage for stripped-down social behaviours. It combines neutral observation and continuous tracking of the camera to create a situation at the border of reality and fiction. Power of intentional observation questions realism as only secondary mimesis.
