Director: Meli Kuhn
In this dance film, feelings of hope, longing and loss are poetically visualised. Playing a piece by the Haarlem-based composer Niels van der Weiden, three jazz musicians accompany four dancers-actors. The setting of the film is the desolate and bleak environment of Doel in Belgium, the village that will also once be missed, because it will have to make way for the expanding port of Antwerp. In the scenes, shot close to the skin and without dialogue, the characters display an intimate and poignant game of attraction and rejection.
