into the dream
I want to create a short film that addresses suicide and the process of forgiveness and understanding. The significance of it being filmed underwater relates to the cleansing powers associated with water and also the unexplainable force and even loss that water can inflict upon human life. I want to contrast the attractive qualities of water and our desire to flock to them with its ability to completely wipe out life as we know it; thus characterizing some of the struggles of those left behind by those who commit suicide.
