“Endless Gravity” Shows the Beauty of the Ocean Floor Without Special Effects
There’s no place on Earth as mysterious as the ocean floor. Pitch black and still largely unexplored (we humans can only withstand so much pressure crushing our soft, fleshy bodies), the ocean floor is a lot like space–it’s vast, it’s mysterious and oddly beautiful. Endless Gravity, a short film shot by Alex Soloviev, is a look at the alluring beauty of ocean creatures. As they float about the screen, their movements against the black backdrop make it look like they’re floating in an endless space–hence the name. Add the ominous spoken poem by Dante Gabriel Rossetti and the ambient soundtrack and you have an experience that’s as close to exploring the ocean floor as you’re going to get.
