Sophie Kurpershoek, Al was het maar voor even / If only for a moment

master audiovisuele kunsten - film

Astrid, a young artist, has turned her back on the world and in a deserted landscape she works on a piece of land-art. Days pass by and her loneliness becomes stifling, until one day she meets the eccentric geologist Emily. Quickly they form a deep connection. Far away from the real world, in a wild and beautiful landscape, they can fantasize, dream and philosophize carelessly; their lives seem temporarily idyllic.

In this film I follow the disillusioned Astrid, who drifts through life and tries to find something of significance. I wanted to find a meditative form in which the events disclose themselves and resonate with Astrid’s battle with overcoming meaninglessness and her quest for love.
