Sailing A Sinking Sea is a feature-length experimental documentary exploring the culture of the Moken people of Burma and Thailand. The Moken are a seafaring community, traditionally spending eight months out of the year in thatch-roofed wooden boats. Viewers will swim under the sea past fishes and mermaids, sail boats across turquoise waters, land on 13 distinct islands, step inside sea shanties on stilts, dance between lovers and emerge drenched in Moken mythology. The film is scored by Bitchin' Bajas (Drag City) and Directed by Olivia Wyatt, an award-winning filmmaker and photographer. Wyatt directed, produced, shot and edited three feature-length documentaries, Staring into the Sun (2011), The Pierced Heart & The Machete (2013), and Sailing A Sinking Sea (2015).
