Experimental Ethnographies Presents 
Olivia Wyatt's Documentary 
Sailing a Sinking Sea (65 min)
Followed by discussion with the filmmaker 
 
Olivia Wyatt's experimental documentary explores the sea-faring Moken people of Burma and Thailand. Olivia will speak following the film and answer questions from the audience. As the first of this year's Experimental Ethnographies events we have invited Olivia to explore the question "what is experimentation" with us.

“This loving impressionistic tribute is [...] an outlier in contemporary cinema, springing as it does from the 1930s ethnographic cinema of Robert Flaherty as well as the later visions of Jean Rouch in the '60s and Robert Gardner (who's cited in the credits) in the '70s and '80s.” — Carson Lund, Slant Magazine
