Wolffia Tratus

An exploration of the abstract recesses of one's own subconscious sensuality. The film shows the perspective of a cave diver as they enter into an unknown cavern. What lies within is a stark reminder of our western culture’s inability to accept our own repressed sexual desires, which are constantly shamed whilst simultaneously packaged, marketed and sold to us.
