Short Film Profile


A disheveled fisherman plods through the dunes, lugging a heavy cart with a wooden boat on it. Finally at the beach, the lure of the sea is strong but first the boat needs repairs. Quickly and decidedly, the fisherman starts to work. He tinkers all night, lit by a little fire. In the morning fog, the voices of sirens call him to sea. Readying the boat for departure, he carefully loads a ragged, heavy bundle which he has concealed until now. Then the fisherman pulls his boat into the waves for a last journey, to be reunited with his loved ones. Slowly the beach is returned to the present.
