The fragile foundations of Venice are slowly being eroded by rising tides, subsidence and pollution – undergoing a brutal transformation that threatens irreversible change to this widely beloved city. Illustrated with degraded images from films submerged in Adriatic seawater, this photo/text docufiction unravels a narrative in which the lagoon city poignantly chronicles its own disappearance.
