The Waterway 2013
This video is set in a holiday resort on the Atlantic Ocean in France. A group of underwater archaeologists are looking for the remains of old shipwrecks and try to protect what they find from corrosion. A spa resort offers its clients seawater treatments as a rejuvenating cure. And a mysterious group of senior citizens tries to find a remedy that will give them the right to eternal life. Does the future of humanity lie under water? In a typically associative way the artists combine events which seem only to relate indirectly to a pseudoscientific story.
