Beneath the Silt

The only character is dying of cancer, from smoking
cigarettes, and needs water from the deepest depths of the Lenape
Lake in order to be cured.  The protagonist goes from a desert-like
environment to the depths of this lake.  Upon hitting the bottom an
exploration of light and smoke transports the protagonist to a
fountain in the middle of a city (Seattle).  The protagonist now has
a new eye (colored glass over the camera lens) to drink the world
through.  To further heighten the dramatic arc of the film the camera
will be attached to the body in the first part of the film, then free
in the middle part, and finally associated with the body again in the
final part of the film.  The film will be four to seven minutes
long.
