This screening program extends the themes of WATER RITES through an array of international films centering water as a subject, giving voice to water, its rhythms, needs, memories and desires. Here water is positioned as a potent non-human agent; as holder of culture, knowledge and memories, as matrix, healer and muse; and also as usurper, with deadly powers of breaking up, drowning, dissolving. The program is presented in two parts, with four films shown in each half of the exhibition timeframe.

Part 1 provides a basis for deepening understanding around contemporary hydropolitics and the effects of extractivism, discussing digital colonialism (DEEP DOWN TIDAL); mineral resources capitalism (WHAT IS DEEP SEA MINING? EPISODE 4: A DEEP SEA MINING GLOSSARY and UNDEREXPOSED); forced migration and climate crisis (4 WATERS/DEEP IMPLICACY).

(Time, like the tide, is running out.)
