Lucile Hadzihalilovic / FR, BE, ES, 2016 / 81 min.
A sinister and superbly shot drama about a mysterious coastal town solely inhabited by mothers and their sons. What are the mothers up to on the shoreline of the roaring ocean at night?
The camera fluidly glides through the underwater world passing unusual organisms. A sea star of a simultaneously seductive and frightening red colour appears. Then we see how the red-headed mothers unite at night, while their sons dream.
Performance The Mirror
The screening of 26 augustus starts withThe Mirror, a performance by Lisette Ros.
By saturating my skin with the black, diseased water during the live performance, I confront and isolate myself with my mirror-image until I drown by my own narcissism. I begin to suffer. The utter love, smiles and confidence start to drown. The disease survives. Captured by myself, for myself, with myself and because of myself.
The process is the work.
