Beyond The Sea

dir. Anastasija Pirozenko | The Netherlands

In 1973 a Soviet writer travelled to Western Europe to explore a newly built modernist town for her next sci-fi novel. The film follows her steps, while juxtaposing past dreams with present realitiesBeyond the Sea is a short fiction-documentary film about Emmen, one of the first planned cities in the Netherlands, and a home to textile and metal industry workers. Emmen was a social experiment, meant to become the embodiment of a committed, happy and united society. But the planned idyll did not last long or perhaps never existed. In this poetic, sci-fi-like film journey, a speculative fiction intertwines with the present-day narratives of the city, revealing modernist dreams and a complex shift in the history of its community.
