Retrograde is a short video essay that takes regret, an unfortunately familiar feeling and concept, and explores what it could mean in an environmental context. It re-imagines a world where water, something many of us take for granted, is scarce and almost alien to us. The video reminds us of water's primal role in our everyday lives and calls us to do something today, before we are swept away by the flood of regret of the future.
