Taiwan is an island but despite being surrounded by the sea its people fear the water - history and religious beliefs have led Taiwanese people to turn their backs to it.

In this film, oceanic literature author Liao Hung-chi and underwater photographer Ray Chin lead the audience out to the sea and into the water. They prompt us to understand the sea and to think about the possibility that the ocean might hold more influence over our lives and the future of our lands.

UK Premiere
