Conceived as an exploration of both harbour piloting areas and Bolex manoeuvring, the film alternates between the studio’s editing table at the facilities of Liaison of Independent Filmmakers of Toronto and various locations on the West shore of Lake Ontario.
The film is part of a project intended to investigate the concept of manoeuvre as referred to both the operations performed with one’s hands and the on-board procedures when approaching a harbour or shore. The film plays in parallel with the idea of precision in the film hand-operation and ship pilotage procedures.
