Scribble Screens Series - 14.40pm - Death of a French woman

It’s a hot sunny day in 2010, frothy whitecaps lick the French coast as a woman and child pad into the swell for a relaxing afternoon swim. At 14.40, after an hour and ten minutes spent attempting to revive her, the woman is declared dead by paramedics at the scene – the victim of a heart attack.

Captured on camera, her footprints in the sand expose the precarious nature of our own legacies – as these markings are scattered to the wind, the signature that we leave upon the planet will fade and vanish. Pounding out visceral red-washed images to the ominous drum of a heartbeat, 14.40 - Death of a French Woman calls us to contemplate our last moments in this life, and the knowledge that we can never be certain when they will arrive.
