Fatal Tide is a short docu-fiction film that explores the concept of flow within a world bound by rules and materials. It begins as a documentary investigating the formations of cyclones during the North Sea storm surge in 1953. Fictionalising the history of the Thames Barrier, it tells a story about a consortium of corporations planning to use an extensive network of sluices to create a massive analog computer to simulate and control markets, ultimately bringing earth to a standstill.
