Beckett in Folkestone

A film by Manuel Vason (Studio Radar)

This film is a specially commissioned version of its one hour long original, offering a unique opportunity to experience Beckett in Folkestone. Through this film, you will walk in the footsteps of a mysterious performer personifying both a member of the public and Beckett himself. The original film was premiered at Creative Folkestone Quarterhouse in June 2021 as part of Folkestone Book Festival.

There are the highs and lows of the tides in connection with the moon phases. This movement of flux and reflux was one of the first phenomena that allowed humans to create a correlation between celestial and terrestrial events, and therefore to be able to make predictions about the climate and to compose systems of time division. This is an attempt to give account of everything the waves bring us at the seashore; a proposal in which physical, conceptual, and ritualistic atmospheres cross each other.
