There are about 140 landscapes painted by Claude Monet in Pourville during 4 long stays between 1882 and 1897. The coastline has hardly changed since then. Enriched by the historic dimension Wyborny presents a panorama of this coast by superimposing Monets paintings with the present reality of the location. His essayfilm is dedicated to Harun Farocki and includes an interview with Michael Snow whose "La région centrale" is considered to be a climax of artistic reflections on representing landscapes.
