Each day, the Carlingford ferry brings people over the border between Northern-Ireland and Ireland, in an era the debate on Brexit is predominant.
Each day, the Carlingford ferry brings people over the border between Northern-Ireland and Ireland, in an era the debate on Brexit is predominant. Staying or remaining, both options create the same big question marks on the future. The short journey over the wide sea brings different thoughts and reflections to the surface, while the border is hiding in the sea. The film creates a kaleidoscopic narrative based on how people’s daily lives and thoughts relate to this imaginary line. How visible would the borderline eventually become?
“Four Seasons In A Day has echoes of Runar Runarsson’s Echo in the way it weaves fragments of time and individual circumstances into a moving portrait of a community. This snapshot of a moment is all the more felt in the light of the simmering unrest in the streets of Northern Ireland.” - Screen Daily
