Seven inhabitants of a de facto state on the Black Sea unfurl a web of stories about loss and displacement through the re-imaginings of dreams and memories of the 1992–93 war in Abkhazia. To question the unstable distinction between fact and fiction, these re-imaginings are interwoven with auto-fictional narration and archival materials that have been processed through an AI technology. The Black Sea permeating the film’s universe acts as a metaphor for both an idyllic holiday destination of utopian happiness as well as a perilous force.
Available online March 22-31 or in person at the Michigan Theater on March 27 at 1:15pm.
