At the invitation of Zones Portuaires festival, Mire is happy to present a short program of experimental films formally flirting with this year’s thematic : surfing !
The playful learning of gliding, the beach and its habits, entering the water, the infinite ocean, the patient await, the immense blue, the wave… Welcome to a world of sensations where light, color, rhythm and contemplation will gently guide you inside the barrel !
