one sea, 10 seas Nour Ouayda

Films index A to Z

عشرة بحور وبحر واحد

Images, sounds, words: three essential elements of cinematic language from which Nour Ouayda creates a three-voice narrative about the multi-year recording of a seaside landscape in Beirut. N., C., and T. are the invisible, mysterious protagonists in this voyage into the heart of recorded memories, reflecting their differing relationships with the world and cinema. For N., the DV aesthetic makes it possible to capture aesthetic flourishes and, like a painter, note subtle changes in a calm or rough sea. For T., the challenge is to compile every sound in the world. But are the sounds she records in her apartment not more faithful to the spirit of the sea? A brilliant poetic essay.
