Film: 40 Views of Water

Film Title: 40 Views of Water

Award Designation: Love Unlimited Film Festival & Art Exhibition Award Winner.

Director: Tom Varisco

Cast: Uyen Vu (Supporting), Morgan Katz (Voice)

Country: USA

Category: Experimental Film

Short Synopsis: A film seeking to express disorientation and shelter of evacuees from Hurricane Katrina.

Detailed Synopsis: The filmmaker and the writer of 40 Views of Water both live in New Orleans, Louisiana, whose flooding following the collapse of defective levees and subsequent forced evacuation of its citizens inspired the film. Since there are no models in the canons of American literature and film for the depiction of the destruction of an entire city, the story of that migration and extended exile from home demands the invention of narrative forms appropriate to this unique catastrophe. The film tries to find a narrative in a meditation on the liquid state. In just forty sentences of narration and their accompanying images, 40 Views of Water seeks to express the sense of disorientation, journey, and sheltering we New Orleanians experienced after the levees fell.
