PROGRAM 1 AN OCEANIC FEELING
blue mantle


Country: USA
Year: 2010
Duration: 35'
Direction: Rebecca Meyers

Filled with hypnotic images of the empty ocean, Meyers’s meditative 16mm film exquisitely renders the textures, colours, and all-over movements of the waves. The ocean appears as a vast emptiness. But as Herman Melville wrote in "Moby Dick", “When beholding the tranquil beautiful and brilliancy of the ocean’s skin, one forgets the tiger heart that pants beneath it.” Meyers reminds us of this tiger heart, putting her sublime visions of this natural expanse into dialogue with quotations and representations that attest to the ocean’s force, tracing its rich history in a cultural repertoire of signs. She draws on American literature of the nineteenth century, monuments, paintings, and museum exhibitions to offer a portrait of the beauty and violence of the Massachusetts coast.
