The film follows the musical form of theme and variations. New connections constantly emerge from the nexus of figures, images and music, always at the same sites. Everything seems to be in flux, cyclic and linear. Lacking a clear narrative structure, the film transports the spectators into a poetic kaleidoscope of human states of mind and yearnings. A conjuring act abounding in beauty and depths of sorrow.
This film tells stories about a community of fantastic beings poised at archetypical crossings and locations, stories about rituals and love, food and killing. It is peopled with solitary figures – driven, yearning, filled with desire – that mutate and metamorphose into new shapes in order to flee from themselves. They form a poetic world of artistic sensibilities embodying the human condition of our times. Horror, spine-tingling pleasure, voyeurism and deep anxieties: all confront the observer – the film’s main figure, a symbol of hope in the form of a little girl, ostracised and persecuted – and drive her back to our origins: the sea.
