The filmmaker searches for traces of the Thames’ distant past by processing 16mm film on the foreshore using water collected from the river. Images of water patterns and foreshore detritus appear alongside close-ups of pre-historic objects discovered nearby. Watermarks and particles of ancient silt cling to the resultant film’s surface, their abstract formations a portal to the river’s unseen forces.
