Impression of the underwater world in the red sea. The film is a bombardment of images and features the music of Abdel Basset Hamouda, an Egyptian musician. The structure of the film is based on the so called «flicker films», in which the unconscious experience of the images is more important than the actual images. MAG is part of the Careless Reef series, four short films who deal with the underwater world.
