Beyond Beach

Mexiko 2018, Farbe, 14:00 Min.
Regie: Clara Winter
Drehbuch, Kamera, Schnitt, Musik: Clara Winter, Miguel Ferráez
DarstellerInnen: Clara Winter, Miguel Ferráez, Megan Marsh


The beach is infused by a pastel-pink haze like a never-ending sunset screensaver. People from all corners of the world are stranded here, taking up on the deal western society claims to offer: the possibility to escape from it. We perform rituals of hedonism, awareness and spirituality which interact with the wireless capital flow that promises paradise within our grasp. Yet something is off: We’re neither relaxed nor carefree, but pathologically unable to care.
