the drowning man // experimental shortfilm

T H E D R O W N I N G M A N | 6′ 37 | experimental

The moment a young man turns into a man.
From the point of despair that this irreverent, irresponsible and childish young man is in, fighting against a severe and restless sea, until the moment his face changes into a harder, tired one.
A face of – not a child anymore – but the one of a man.
Ravel synthesized music involves us, submerge us, never letting us rest or even breath, not even when this reckless young man survives.
Only then, this dying child becomes The Drowning Man.
