To support Plastic Free July VIMEO has chosen Alyx Duncan's award-winning short film, The Tide Keeper as one of its Staff Picks - a big thankyou for sharing it with us!
A haunting blend of fantasy and reality, the film stars Duncan's father, conservationist Lee Stuart, as an old seaman who one night, dreams the ocean into his bed. His sea green sheets become the polluted waters of his worst nightmare. His own mortality is at risk as his household objects begin to suffocate him.
Duncan says the film involved developing choreography combining Stuart's body, puppetry and the manipulation of objects found in his home. Stuart has lived on a small island just off the coast of New Zealand for more than 30 years.
