“Atlantis. Driving by so many utopias like it. Some already gone. The fate of mankind in stone and sand. Others exist only in memory. The train brings me to the town near the sea. The dune. An abandoned station, the living room just in time. A postcard from Giverny. Next day the fog arrives. Stuck in sand, I see Atlantis again from far away. Driving past a man building his house, others have left already, one hundred thousand of them. It’s spring and the flowers are still there. He sets the stones and crosses back to the desert.” Atlantis is an ongoing project. It is a visual poem about mankind, nature and the past, present, future, in South Western Africa. This first film takes place in mining communities along the Atlantic coast. Shot on 35mm. Exposed on 16mm positive print.
