As If - III Country of the Sea

The city premiere of the widely-travelled film From Gulf to Gulf to Gulf. In other antagonisms: labour deep inside containers, voyeurs in the busiest shipping channel, lists arguing with lists, photographs of other photographs, and a wall-map titled The Country of the Sea. A counterpoint to both the imperial 'view from the boat', and to contemporary metaphors of the 'liquidity' and 'flow' of oceanic and global relations.
