I’m Not Who You Think I’m Not #30: 4 Waters-Deep Implicancy
Arjuna Neuman and Denise Ferreira da Silva
Film premiere followed by conversation, in English
4 Waters is as much a film project and an experiment in collaboration as it is a set of fragments drawn from a re-imagined cosmos. These fragments, sounds, and stories help us convey the experiential moment of entanglement—or rather, they describe an entangled moment prior to separation¬—what we call Deep Implicancy.
One such story we follow is that of water, as it phase transitions with and into other matter, including life, but also as it combines disparate geographies, bodies of or in water, and four islands within them—Lesbos, Haiti, Marshall Islands, Tiwi.
Through a series of experimental migrations and elemental crossings, we begin to question the form of the universal human, its calcified and exceptional origins, and in particular, its ethical program.
Wandering and wondering through this transformative figuring of justice, we ask, what if our image of the world recalled phase instead of measure? And what becomes of ethics if we let go of value?
