The sea has always been present on screen as a backdrop to stories of journeys, battles, adventures and scientific expeditions to explore its depths. But more than just a location, the sea is the star of the films in this session, which evoke the centrality of this “place” and maritime motifs, ships and seamen, in their representational strategies, a phenomenon prefigured in painting and literature. The films of Rosalind Nashashibi, Rebecca Meyers and Peter Hutton are nautical incursions, shipboard projects splashed with literary citations and pictorial references. [16-mm screening]
