DocNomads film awarded in Berlinale
Jury statement: “This short film is a work of art! Expressive and rich in contrast to the fast pace of daily life; at the same time observing and value-free, it allows itself the freedom to connect its own self to the images. The film conveys its content in a playful way, mostly without many words, and it invites you to think. Through the interaction of shapes, colours, edges, curves, sections, light and shadows, it clearly stands out from the other films.”
NOTHING TO SEE HERE
By Nicolás Bouchez (Belgium) • 16' • 2021
Like a stroke of white paint, the aeroplane’s condensation trail moves across the blue canvas of the sky. The voice on the radio is talking about an upcoming lunar eclipse – of which nothing will be seen here, on the outskirts of a city in Portugal. Instead, with touches of humour and magical realism, director Nicolas Bouchez observes the everyday happenings and colourful facets of a city where there is ostensibly nothing to see.
