Two women spend the weekend on the North Sea. They go for walks on the beach, enjoy local delicacies like freshly made fish rolls and check their weather apps. Sky, horizon, sea. While one will soon return to her family in Argentina, the other will travel to the Caribbean to begin a voyage sailing across the Atlantic. One wave follows the next, but each is different. Thoughts drift, time loses its meaning – and the sea takes over the narration. Drift is a gently bobbing, sensual meditation.
In 2014, HELENA WITTMANN (*1982) finished her studies at the University of Fine Arts in Hamburg. Her shorts Wildnis (2013) and 21,3° C (2014) were shown at several festivals. Drift is her feature film debut and was shown at this year's Venice film festival in the Film Critics' Week.
