Each day, the Carlingford ferry transports people over the border between Northern-Ireland and Ireland, whilst the debate over Brexit rages. Staying or remaining, both options prompt big question marks about the future. The short journey over the wide sea brings different thoughts and reflections to the surface. Four Seasons in a Day creates a kaleidoscopic narrative based on how people’s daily lives and thoughts relate to the imaginary line under the sea. How visible could the borderline eventually become?
