Proximity, by filmmaker Inger Lise Hansen is a time-lapse animation film about the disorientating and unsettling filmic space that occurs on the screen from an upside down view. The camera moves through four shots recorded in different weather conditions, on a deserted beach at Skagen, Denmark’s northernmost point, inverting the ground and the sky. The result is a mysterious and disorienting space in accelerated time, where the originally solid ground at the top of the frame appears to be sliding past like a lava-stream.

Director: Inger Lise Hansen. Camera collaborators: Hilde Malme and Greg Pope. Sound design: Sturla Einarson. Production: Inger Lise Hansen, co-production Fjordholm filmproduksjon. Funding: Finetake for Animate! by Arts Council England and Channel 4 TV.
