Roadside greenery is no man's land. Created to be driven past, not to be in. Geometrical and artificially delimited but overgrown by weeds – does it belong to man or to nature? The same goes for your Body. You drag it through life instead of being in it. Become it. I made this film to let your senses rest between real movies. To let your Body take a nap. Sweet dreams, second Body. I love you.
Andrea Arnold's documentary Cow is also among the nominated productions. Magdalena Kowalczyk was responsible for its cinematography.
