Circle in the Sand
(USA 2012, 16mm, 46 Min., enOF)
In a ruined near-future, a band of listless vagabonds ambles across a war-torn coastal region. Rummaging, stuttering and smashing through the leftovers of Western culture, these ragged souls conjure up an unstable magic. Suspicion, boredom, garbage and glamour conspire in the languid pageantry of ruin. Feel the breeze in your hair and the world crumbling through your fingers.
