BEACON is a montage of location shots filmed at different places around the world. Each of these sites is located by the sea. Seamlessly combining travelogue footage and appropriated clips from feature films, "Beacon" produces a single, imaginary place of expectation.
Distant echoes of stories of the sea mingle with the banality of today's touristy beachlife.
In its collage of places of expectation and with its seductive prospects of the sea, BEACON sets off on a journey with no distinct destination." Christoph Girardet/Matthias Müller
