Open Water - The Offering

World Premiere

Taking a true event as a starting point, Open Water: The Offering is based on an incident that occurred in 1965 in the coastal town of Albany when a well-known whaler and gunner on The Cheynes III (a whale chaser) lost his leg after it became entangled in a rope attached to a harpoon fired at a whale. With this film, Perth-based artists Erin Coates and Anna Nazzari offer a darkly magic realist version of maritime history in regional Australia and portray their unique vision of an Australian Oceanic Gothic.
