Raoul Servais

Sirène (Sirens)

9' - 1968
Director: Raoul Servais Composer: Lucien Goethals
This short film is part of Launch Kortfilm.be 3.0.
Monstrous cranes and prehistoric flying reptiles dominate an inhospitable seaport. Only a lonesome angler is tolerated there as a human being. He becomes a witness to an eccentric idyll between a cabin boy and a mermaid. Dream or reality?
