Diving & The Memory Falls Away is a non-narrative film based on two poems. Diving, a words poem, and The Memory Falls Away, a movement poem, are presented sequentially and meet through theme, rhythm, and aesthetic. Both explore rare moments of self-realisation, of dropping pretence and truly seeing oneself.
