Homage to Lotte Hass (1928–2015), the “first lady of diving.” This experimental film is a memorial leap. Underwater models stand in for Lotte, or rather: They jump in for her. They jump into the Old Danube and go searching, in a state of floating, before they rise again, transformated, in the Red Sea. Their body parts and limbs flicker, become blurred. The movements of all the divers, of water, air and mysterious plants turn into a collective action.
