Night Shore

Animation | 9:40 min | Norway

Synopsis

The sea and the fjords used to be our main road. With everybody going in cars the water is now an obstacle and in the dark winter night the sea a stranger to us. The everchanging water surface reflects any light source. Becoming the reflections of the lit civilization we’re experiencing the night in a small fishing town.
