Au Mur de La Mer is a short dance film that follows the inevitably intertwined rumblings of two humans. Set against the raw landscape of coarse cliffs and green-algae coated boulders on the Atlantic coast of France, the film imagines regret as a frontier borrowed from our own future.
The duo stumbles, soaked and soiled, through fading remnants of Hitler’s terrifying Atlantic Wall in Cap Gris-Nez. They pull and tear at one another, crudely easing the other’s fall and helping each other stand once more.
Featuring the striking and solemn Astrid Sweeney and Jonas Vandekerckhove, Au Mur de La Mer leaves us with one eye rinsed by sea water, the
other eye full of sand.
