The Third Line, in collaboration with The Pavilion Downtown Dubai presents Water Panics in the Sea, a digital stop-frame film by Laleh Khorramian. Reflecting on human themes of odyssey and conquest, the film follows the voyage of a ghost ship/time machine as it traverses the ocean waters through an accelerated, indistinct chronology.

This is the fourth in a series of short films loosely based on the five elements of Earth, Air, Fire, Water and Ether. Constructed through a process of iterative magnification and manipulation of minute details derived from monotype prints and drawings, the film seeks to question our habituated perception by an intricate use of scale, distance, time and space. Along with an original soundtrack the film produces a theatrical framework through a process of layering and sampling.
