Today No Shooting
A white concrete wall divides the landscape of an open heath field. A young woman appears and starts to move around it. In the montage, timescapes start shifting, the „I“ splits up in different directions and tries to understand the wall.
The military field „Ravlunda“ on the east coast of Scania embodies ambivalence in the landscape: it changes its function regularily, between military and touristic use / environmental protection. When the field is closed, booms and shots are heard all night long. Tanks roll over the meadows. When the field is open, free roaming horses dominate the scenery. The filmmaker takes this contradictive double usage as an occasion to visually explore own contradictions by means of the body.
