The story of the city of Brest is told through images, archival material and a mix of factual, mythological and philosophical narration. In Brest, suppressed memories live on in the water surrounding the city, slowly infiltrating the buildings, consequently leading to the slow dissolution of the city.
BREST is part of an open series of performative city portraits. It exists as performance-lecture and as independent video.
Performance-Lecture, ca 30 min.
