the screen on wich delete beach, an animee with an distopian story, is shown hangs in a dark landscape. mist wafts around hills of shredded rubber that protude into the darkness of the space. oil lakes lie between the hills and bubble slowly in interaction with the movie. the screen reflects in one of them. coloured spotlights interact with the film as well and create drifting shadows that bring the landscape to life.
