In "Postcard from Bexhill-on-Sea", voice-overs combine with views of the sea. Strolling along the English coast, where the climat is milder, ageing personnes respond to a question: how do you see the future? Some more optimistic than others focus on their remaining time; others worried about the England future, nostalgically comment on the lack of civility and human contact in the world today.

Postcard from Bexhill-on-Sea, 2014, single-channel HD video installation with sound, 18 minutes, English with French version available on headphones.
