The Rule of Capture

Film Source:

Australian Premiere

The rule of capture is the legal term which grants the rights to groundwater to land owners. Using images of 1950 Texas land survey photographs and dowsing rods, the animation speculates on water rights and the meaning of a glance, a flutter, a text asking both “Is there water underneath?” and “How do you know if they like you?”
