Other Than Our Sea

documentary, migration, Greece, Mediterranean Sea
From the relics of an ancient greek colony in Southern Italy, to modern day shipwrecks in the Mediterranean Sea, a story of exploration told through fragments of classical literature, flashes of ethnographic films and manipulated excerpts of current newsreels. Referencing the recent tragic circumstances that drowned thousands of migrants departing from Northern Africa to seek asylum in Europe, „Other Than Our Sea“ collapses visual cues as layers of imagery to embroider an enigmatic idea of traveling at sea in times of conflict. A journey that can be a leap into the unknown, a voyage of discovery, or forced migration, death as well as rebirth.
