diving- film for music
One artist, one subject, one camera, one light, one musician. Diving is a film composed for music comprising nine silent cinematic movements. Each ‘movement’ is a portrait in slow-motion of an individual who has undergone extraordinary life changing experiences. HIV, addiction, violence, trauma and paralysis are some of the issues exposed and explored. Diving is accompanied live by a musician who conveys the emotions as they unfold onscreen; film and music are intrinsic and inextricable. Throughout Diving the unquestioned trust between artist and subject unlocks moments of profound intimacy as suppressed or harboured emotions surface. These shared moments engage the audience in catharsis, reassurance or self-reflection.
