Reporting the Weather

3:00 / Belgium / 2016 / Super 8

Synopsis: The starting point of this film was a long distance and a nearing end: ‘There was still some time before the clouds would come and the rain would start to fall. Sunbeams everywhere. I think of you and hope you are fine, just like the weather.’

Director: Eva Claus
