The island of Sylt, one of the most beautiful islands of northern Germany, is in danger. Rising sea levels, successive storms and constant winds announce its disappearance. Man answers back with frenetic and obsessive gestures. But how do you save nature

The island of Sylt, one of the most beautiful islands of northern Germany, is in danger. Rising sea levels, successive storms and constant winds announce its disappearance. Man answers back with frenetic and obsessive gestures. But how do you save nature without betraying it, since letting it live is perhaps also letting it die ? Through the mapping of filmic, photographic and sound work completed in a fifteen year period, Samuel Bester explores this territory in turmoil.

With five experimental films, one documentary, an audio creation and photographic work, he draws a subjective map of the island, a poetic and tragic testimony of its metamorphoses.
