Fish in the Sea - Short Film - By Aino Salmi, Baltic Film and Media School, 2015 Synopsis: “Fish in the Sea” is an essay about dark period of life. The film takes the spectator to step inside of the oppres- sive time after an uttermost break-up. It researches the state of mind in the time, when one is too tired to cry and can’t do anything else but just sit and stare ahead, and try to accept the situation of being now only an unit of one, instead of two. It tells about the seek of answers in the stage where the whole foundation on what one has been building the life and future on so far, has fallen off, and under the feet there is only emptiness. It introduces the theme with poetic style and strong visuals.
