Waterwork

UK, 1987 (MIFF 1988, Experimental)

Director: Tony Hill

A sculptural film which explores the space at and just below the surface of a swimming pool. The film plays with orientation, weightlessness and particularly the surface itself, that peculiar boundary between worlds that is both window and mirror, both visible and invisible.
