FEINT MOVEMENTS

2013

Performed at Karavaan Festival

 

Feint Movements is an inquiry at the identity of the coastal village Egmond aan Zee in North-Holland.

 

The prominent lighthouse J.C.J. van Speijk is the starting-point of this film project.

For years the lighthouse rotated its lightbeams over the village and the sea; a beacon meant to be seen by ships and sailors.

But what is it the tower reflects it's light on..?

 

This movie is made in the same range as the light beams, shot from the top of the tower as well as down in the village. Everyday movements of villagers, horsemen, runners, kytes and tractors.

The spectators are invited to climb the stairs to the top of the lighthouse. There the 12 windows are replaced with flatscreens, showing the area around the tower in a different way. The movies are projected simultaneously which give unexpected relations in view and movement.

Together with the soundtrack, a poetic portrait of the village is created.

In collaboration with Ester van Waalwijk (film) and Stefaan Smagghe (violin).
