Sea State (2022)
The violent forces of the sea converge on a boat in the water. Mariners must read the wind, swell, and currents, overwhelming forces which influence each other as surely as they impact the boat. Safe passage at sea requires an instinctual understanding that no force exists in isolation, a critical lesson for our survival on land. Runtime 20m. Directed by Jordan Freeman.
