DRIFT

Two women spend a weekend in the North Sea. One of them will soon return to her family in Argentina, whereas the other one will try to come a step closer to the ocean. She will cross the Atlantic Ocean on a sailing vessel. Time leaves the beaten track and the swell lulls to deep sleep. The sea takes over the narration. When the other one reappears, the wind is still in her hair while the ground beneath her feet is solid. She returns and the other one could ask: ‘Have you changed?’

‘DRIFT is the story of a transformation. Halfway through the film, the texture of the sea itself takes over, and the film surrenders its narration to the matter…’

—Birgit Glombitza

Buoyed by Nika Son’s remarkable sound design, which together with Helena Wittman’s cinematography creates a sensorial experience of being at sea, unlike any you have previously experienced in the cinema, DRIFT’s depth and dissonances multiply as you watch.
