cormorant is a shortfilm by the artists Ethan Folk and Ana Berkenhoff
Shot in the city of London, looking for the interaction between documentary setting/backdrop and artistic approach. A conversation between imagination and reality. Inspired by Wim Wenders Wings of desire it works on the thoughts of pleasure and disturbance confronted with the everyday life of the city and unfolds a stream of consciousness in an eternal motion between forward and backward looking -in camera movement, sound direction and flow of thoughts.
cormorant is a movement and perspective study that questions the life of human beings in their financial centres. Like a cormorant a voice from our dreams is landing in town and tries to make out what the environment is about. The body is placed like an unusual object in everyday places. The dance is the city life that dwells around us.
