Une Condition Naturelle

In this film, created at a residency in the Frisian ‘wilderness’, Walter van Broekhuizen and Arjen de Leeuw try to become uncivilized. They play two urbanites eager to find nature, both in the landscape, and in themselves. Through various rituals – sitting by a campfire, chopping down a tree – we begin to see the collapse of the divide between nature and civilization, as the characters build themselves ironic sets and situations in order to discover it.
