(in the framework of POEMS FROM THE SEA)
A film about saying farewell to a memory, based on a poem by Theo Raats.
A fantasy about saying farewell to a memory, based on the poem Domburg by Theo Raats.
Now we stand silent side by side
like high dunes shoulder to shoulder
and see Domburg down below
for the first time in years.
There was a time when we could walk on water
and lived off drink and kisses.
We dressed ourselves with dune sand
and played our game
until sleep interrupted us.
so close and around us
was too far away in the distance.
Now we stand silent side by side.
And have everything we desired.
