A group of artists, shaken by the death of their friend, build extraordinary boats out of ordinary junk and set out for open water.
Flood Tide is a collaboration with the Swimming Cities of Switchback Sea, a project dreamed up by the artist Swoon and built by a group of artists and performers who floated seven large sculptures down the Hudson River. Flood Tide interweaves documentation of this journey with layers of fiction, mythology, and oral history to create a film that both documents and reimagines the real-life project.
Music is an integral part of Flood Tide, both on screen and off. The film features an all- original score by the band Dark Dark Dark and includes several onscreen performances by the band, as well as a special performance by renowned experimental musician Pauline Oliveros.
The film will be preceded by a program of shorts by director Todd Chandler accompanied by live scores by Chandler and Marshall LaCount Dark Dark Dark, XXXPRSNXXX
