At the edge of the world, four men live on one abandoned island. One morning, a dead man is discovered in a boat. It's the beginning of a series of catastrophes. The fish is dying, the sea is empty ... Seán Beag, the young disciple of Marcus, then seeks to restore the order of things.

NORDIC GRAMMAR

Kaspar Peters | 2019 | 22:32 | Germany | 16mm

A woman goes on a journey to the north. When she comes to an abandoned house, she settles there and appropriates the lives of the former inhabitants. We do not know who this woman is, where she came from and why she left. She is an empty figure, completely permeable to the world through which she moves. The light comes and goes. A storm is coming. Everything is in the process of dissolution: identity, home, the border between inside and outside, even the images themselves.
