Imagine Ocean
Ce film sera présenté lors de l’événement La Nuit du court le 16 mars 2024 à l’Université Concordia.

Imagine Ocean allie mythologie hindoue et histoires humaines à une riche ambiance sonore, dans une réflexion sur notre environnement changeant. Mettant en vedette une plongeuse Ama japonaise, les vagues de la côte d’Ise-Shima et le mythique Makara, cette vidéodanse révèle un lien profond entre la mer et l’homme. Sans dialogue, le film mise sur le visuel et le son, fusionnant réalité, mythe, changements écologiques et existence humaine dans un récit entrelacé. Initialement simple, il évolue en un film évocateur et profond, mettant en évidence notre relation complexe avec l’océan et la Terre.
Réalisation Jiekai Liao, Angela Liong
