A post-apocalyptic picnic at a suicide hotspot
Shot on the crumbling cliffs of Beachy Head, Landfill plays out as a Beckettian post-apocalyptic dialogue as two women sink, at an erosive pace, into a fissure. Time-lapse cinematography charts their descent as try to puzzle out what went wrong and whether or not it was their fault.
