The film documents the daily life of a family sleeping and living in a single room, a duck hunter’s nightly canoe trips, and the preparations for a theater performance in a care home.
Shots from different times of day merge into each other almost imperceptibly, so a dry seabed magically changes into a rippling expanse of water. Sophisticated sound design and the interplay of light complete the wonder.
Military exercises, newborn lambs, mating oysters—all this life passes by without commentary. Over four seasons, the tides, people, and wildlife constantly come and go. A beautifully designed portrait of pulsating nature that invites viewers to find their own associations and meaning.
