Film Synopsis

Watersong is intended as a form of meditation. Inspired by Stan Brakhage, it immerses the viewer in modes of seeing and experiencing which prioritise physicality and seek to disrupt their normal emotional state. This meditative form is used to replicate the experience of being submerged in water, in which sensation in the body overwhelms that of the mind, allowing for what I can only describe as the emptying out of the head.

This film was made as part of the LICA359: Experimental Cinema: Theory and Practice
