"I knew a king struck by dementia praecox whose madness consisted of thinking he was king." Francis Picabia
WINNER: Highest award in the section "The Abolition of Time" - Cinemistica V Cinema Festival, Granada 2018
BAĦAR ŻMIEN (Of Time And The Sea) is a film about a stasis and slow change. A crippled King whose kingdom has crumbled lives in a mould infested bunker with his two daughters. They reside on an isolated island in the wake of a bizarre malady of mysterious origin.
Following a series of encounters with an obnoxious neighbour, a Chinese billionaire desperate to contract the disease and a sousaphone player in search of his band mates, the malady threatens to return. The social order, already precarious, crumbles as the virus takes hold once again.
