“A young boy releases a cloud into a church and it builds to a storm. Elwood’s Ark traces the journey of the water we drink, back 13.8 billion years through time and space to the beginnings of the Universe, challenging our perceptions of religion and redemption.
Water is something that everyone can relate to. Yet we rarely think about where it comes from, and how far its ancient molecular cocktail has travelled, to be here with us in this small moment – or how it will exist long after we’re gone. For Elwood’s Ark, we wanted to create a short film that would approach the subject of water’s journey, and our fragile relationship with it, putting into perspective human existence in the vastness of time and space.”
