Shot in enchanting black-and-white 35mm, Elisa Ribes’ choreography invites the Mediterranean sea to dance with her. Through playful editing and time-lapse photography, forms and rhythms emerge from the landscape as if responding to the invitation. A charming, poetic dance film in which the body becomes one with nature.
