Sweating and in a very confined space, four men rehearse the resistance. They are strenuously working out, both physically and mentally, for an event that may never come to be. First, they call off a strange list of first names noted on the wall of a room, then they sing in choir an anthem against religion and militarism.

Seen from several perspectives, the mysterious moment when chance meetings and future tragedies intersect – anywhere in the world. Even if the future fate of the protagonists seems predictable, their actions cannot be influenced. A film based loosely on Ted Hughes‘ text The Pan, one of only two poems that Hughes wrote for his wife Sylvia Plath, who committed suicide in 1963.

Born in 1961 in Hampshire, he lives in Devonshire and Brittany. He is a painter and musician and has exhibited nationally and internationally since his studies. He has been increasingly involved in experimental filmmaking and collaboration at the Dance/Film Lab at the University of Plymouth.

She is the Associate Head of School Arts and Humanities and programme leader for Dance Theatre at the University of Plymouth. She was honoured with a major Arts Council of England award to help her develop her practice as a dance filmmaker and choreographer in collaboration with Russell Frampton.

What first begins as a simple linear narrative about the return of a young German soldier from Afghanistan soon becomes sinister. Continuity is the story of a middle-aged married couple who repeatedly invites young men to their house in a small German town for an arcane ritual. Three different young men representing the couple‘s lost son Daniel spend the night in the house. Afterwards, they mysteriously disappear.
