Coastland

A Film by Miruna Dunu

Synopsis

LITORAL
“Coastland” presents a fictional narrative rooted into architectural research. The story of the Western Black Sea coast begins in a distant future and goes back to its roots, only to reveal cyclical destruction and rebirth. The film is created entirely out of the author’s collection of authentic postcards.
