Synopsis

“Seasick” is a performance-film that depicts not only the invisible, but those who can’t see. By turning the film into an intervention platform inside an exhibition, echoing a specific question, the question gradually moves beyond the limits of the exhibition and the film itself. It remains to be seen who is interested in the answer. (B. G.)
