Short Film: WEEPING WATER, 8min., USA, Dance

This film is about the perils of a shark whose fin is hunted to sell as a delicacy. The dancer interprets the grace of the shark’s movements until the dire moment when he is captured in ropes and his fin severed. The dancer twists his body in angular gestures to capture the tragic moment. The pain, the struggle, and the inescapable death of the wounded shark are meant to project the suffering of all animals hunted to satisfy the human greed for domination over all living specIes. A shark’s fin sells for 50 cents but costs this magnificent animal his life.
