Water Panics in the Sea, is the fourth in a series of short films based on the five elements of Earth, Air, Fire, Water and Ether. Constructed through a process of iterative magnification and manipulation of minute details derived from mono-type prints and drawings, the film seeks to question our habituated perception by an intricate use of scale, distance, time and space. Reflecting on human themes of odyssey and conquest, the film follows the voyage of a ghost ship as it traverses the ocean waters through an accelerated, indistinct chronology, underscoring the seemingly infinitesimal, the absurd, and the epic. Soundtrack performed and composed by Shahzad Ismaily.
