A video based on the performance ‘Hayama’ (‘into the sea’) by ‘Eifo Dana Group’.

The performance shows a group of people who are weary from the local war of territory and corruption. Their solution is to set out into the sea in order to build the first oceanic settlement off the Israeli coast.

The video is trying to visualize the courage and bravery of the immigrants to the ocean and the contrast of this notion with images of people swimming around them and sounds of a beach life guard - symbolizing both the intrusion of these acts today and the irrelevance of this kind of heroism.
