Sea Change (2021) is a short film in which the current moment opens up for reflection from the viewpoint of an imagined future. Drawing from elements of both documentary and science-fiction, the film examines the fragile and illusory nature of even the most fundamental structures underpinning our societies. The viewer encounters a strangely familiar underwater world: forests petrified to the seabed, endless rows of brick walls and buildings eroded into heaps of stone betray a ruined prison, the disciplinary structure of a culture lost in time. What kind of society lies behind these remains?
Directed by Marko Karo (Finland)
