“Sea Birth” Screening in Okinawa

Sea Birth Screening

Artwork by James Jack

Part one of the work Sea Birth (2017) begins with the spirits of those who have died in the sea near the site of a shipwreck from the 19th century. Part two of Sea Birth (2018) delves into the militarized spaces of the sea in Okinawa today seen through the eyes of a young couple falling in love.


In preparation for the production of part three a discussion on the meaning of birth will occur after the screening.
