An upside-down time-lapse camera is moved frame by frame on a track along a beach inverting the ground and the sky. The camera moves through four shots recorded in different weather conditions. The result is a mysterious and disorienting space in accelerated time, where the originally solid ground at the top of the frame appears to be sliding past like a lava-stream.
Proximity, by filmmaker Inger Lise Hansen, was shot on Super16mm film, on location in North Jutland, Denmark.
