A small group of people is waiting. One reads a book, another stares into space. Out of nowhere, a tidal wave catches them off guard. What follows is a battle against the water, filmed in slow motion. The devastation is huge, but the will to survive is greater. Bill Viola (b. 1951, New York) chooses extremely slow images; slowly but surely, the spectator is engulfed.
