A film by Laurie Charles and Rémi Groussin
The rise in sea levels is intensifying. Large rolls of waves aided by strong winds, which are no longer stopped by dykes or water retention systems, are restructuring the coastline day by day. On all the beaches of the world, human footprints are slowly disappearing. As the dunes continue to retreat inland, plastic chairs on bar terraces are eroded by sand and glass bottles eaten away by salt. Sea water evaporates and seeps into wood, stone and concrete. The salt is washed away by foam, sea spray and bird droppings, and then enters the interior of buildings.Eventually, it accumulates in the walls. The skin of the houses dissolves.
