Four Seasons in a Day is a dynamic portrait of the border between Ireland and Northern Ireland in the time of Brexit. Every day, a ferry transports passengers across the Carlingford Lough, a breathtaking fjord that forms the border between Ireland and Northern Ireland in the east. As the border slips invisibly past, the short crossing brings a range of emotions to the surface. No matter how deep the water seems between the two sides, the unpredictability of the weather is something they undoubtedly have in common.
Annabel Verbeke (Belgium) graduated magna cum laude at the RITCS Film School in Brussels. Her graduation film Les enfants de la mer/mère won 8 international awards and was selected by more than 20 international film festivals. Her next film We will remember them was the best watched documentary film on Flanders national broadcasters in the same year. Her latest film Four Seasons in a Day, part of the Borderline collection, had its world premiere in the International spectrum competition at Hotdocs 2021, and won the award for best emerging international filmmaker. As a documentary filmmaker, Annabel is looking for beauty in the most modest and common things surrounding us.
