The sea is the largest museum of human history. In its depths it collects remnants of past eras, trinkets and jewelry, ships and lives. In the impressionistic documentary Maregrave the ocean regains its mythical aura. The camera floats above and dives under water capturing the rich darkness of the water, the hypnotic patterns in the sea’s motions, beckoning but also startling. Mixing staged and authentic situations, an observational and poetic approach, the documentary paints a haunting portrait of the North Sea that peeks into the future of a Europe faced with unpredictable and fast-paced climate changes.
