The sea giveth and the sea taketh away

Director Coco Schrijber takes a closer look at the link between human attraction to our planet's vast unforgiving oceans and her own family's mourning after losing her brother at sea. Seeking out others who have had similar experiences, Schrijber employs astounding and sublime imagery to explore the role these majestic bodies of water play in the human mind. HOW TO MEET A MERMAID is a beautiful, poetic story about looking to the sea for answers, but ultimately, it is a film about processing the torrent of emotions that arises after losing a loved one.
