Storyline

An intensely dark psychological drama, Beneath the Surface is set between a psychiatrist's office and a public swimming pool and tells the story of Michael, a young man undergoing long-term psychiatric evaluation. During a long session with his doctor Michael struggles through a series of visual tests. Out of the blue an image triggers a profound memory of an incident from his past. The incident appears to be directly related to his current situation but is his memory real or the figment of a delusional mind? Beneath the Surface explores how Apophenia (seeing patterns and making connections in random or meaningless data) can effect memory and behaviour whilst observing some humorous truths about lane swimming in public pools. Written and directed by filmmaker Alexander Osman, the story is beautifully captured by acclaimed cinematographer Shaun Harley Lee and scored by Prix Italia-nominated composer, Jon Nicholls. A talented cast is led by Stephen McLeod, Lucy Roslyn and Tommie Grabiec.
