Synopsis

“I see everything,” she says, as if it was a curse. Brilliant sunshine, clear blue skies. The sea is calm, framed by a piece of railing. A peaceful moment if it weren’t for the fact that the sea is standing upright, vertical, like a waterfall. A rush of images, twirling, upside down, jolting. People in the boat, in the water, screams, life jackets, emergency whistles. There’s no horizon any more, no sky, no up or down, only deepness and nothing to hold on to. Even time’s flow comes to a halt, contracting into the brutal present. She is filming and speaking. To beat being tired, being cold, the fact that help isn’t coming. To beat dying, just for something to remain.

Sinopsis

“Vidim sve”, kaže ona, kao da je riječ o kletvi. Briljantna sunčeva svjetlost, čista plava nebesa. More je mirno, uokvireno dijelom ograde. Bio bi to spokojan tren da nije mora koje stoji uspravno, vertikalno, poput vodopada. Nalet slika, kovitlac, naopačke, poskakivanje. Ljudi u brodu, u vodi, vrisci, prsluci za spasavanje, zviždaljke za uzbunu. Nema više horizonta, nema neba, ni gore ni dolje, samo dubina, bez ikakvog oslonca. Čak i vrijeme više ne teče, sažimajući se u okrutnu sadašnjost. Ona snima i govori. Kako bi pobjedila umor, hladnoću, činjenicu da pomoć ne dolazi. Kako bi pobjedila smrt, samo da nešto preostane.
