Immersion

I am drawn to the river, to float in my wet suit, suspended, weightless above another world.

This film is an experiment in underwater filming, observing the changing body of the river through the seasons.

Music: ‘Animals’ by James Etherington, sung by hortus vocalis and conducted by Markus Wettstein

The filmmaker narrates a series of dreams with water themes, dreamt over the course of a year during which she went to New Zealand. The film captures how closely her dream world and the material world she explores run parallel, and sometimes interweave, reality becoming dream-like. Both worlds are imbued with mystery and a sense of omnipresent danger.
Selected for screening at the 2012 Greater Manchester Fringe Festival.
