The Water Show Extravaganza (2016)

2016 | UK | Sophie Michael | ★★★★

Sophie Michael's fascinatingly stimulating short film The Water Show Extravaganza captures an at once creepy, otherworldly, and wonderfully outdated light and water show, which feels like a lost Twilight Zone episode shorn of its plot.


"The Watershow Extravaganza is a film presenting the eponymous attraction at Watermouth Castle in Devon, UK. Built for the 1951 Festival of Britain before being installed in the theme park in the 1980s, the show choreographs water and coloured light to paper roll music played by a 1920s Mighty Mortier organ."
