When climate-change journalist Eiren Caffall was diagnosed with chronic kidney disease, she realized that, like the planet, she was slowly drowning. But instead of allowing the nearly invisible effects of her condition to overwhelm or paralyze her, Caffall uses her illness as a lens to look at the crisis of climate change.

Directed: Scott K. Foley
Written: Eiren Caffall
Music: Joshua Dumas


released January 8, 2020

Composed and performed by Joshua Dumas

Underlying soundscape is algorithmically generated from global sea level and global temperature data from the time of Caffall's birth through the beginning the film. Piano improvisations in response to Caffall's essay.
