The Waste Land

Belgium, Rotterdam Harbour 2024

Chris Teerink


A full century after publication, The Waste Land considers T. S. Eliot’s namesake poem alongside our present, assuredly asserting that the words continue to resonate and to fuel our imagination. Filmmaker Chris Teerink offers no analysis of the poem, but instead seeks parallels. With a soundtrack by Dutch singer-songewriter Blaudzun, and using photographs and stills instead of moving images, he creates a slideshow that mirrors the fragmentary core of Eliot’s language.
