'Oil on Water' Exposes the World's Most Closely Guarded Secret

Share Article

Tidal Wave Productions launches 'Oil on Water', a new feature film bringing to light one of the most closely guarded secrets due to social stigma, and yet most prevalent illnesses in our world today. "About one-in-five people suffer from a diagnosable mental disorder during any given year." Carolyn Robinowitz, M.D. American Psychiatric Association.

The premiere of "Oil on Water", a psychological drama based on the secretive, but very real and devastating mental condition of schizophrenia, happens at the Suncoast in Kwa Kulu Natal tonight.

The film revolves around a young creative couple, Max and Anna, whose idyllic life together begins to spiral out of control when Max starts experiencing strange symptoms that he cannot explain to himself, or share with Anna.

When these 'symptoms' begin to manifest in other strange and often bizarre ways -- and finally in Max's art -- it leads to Anna's utter despair and to her having to confront her fear that their relationship will not survive the change, or that she will be able to reconnect with Max again.

Oil on Water is a visually evocative film depicting the raw humanity of two people trying to hold onto a life that's falling apart. It digs deep into the complex issues of life and love, art and reality, and manifests what it means to live in ignorance and in denial. And, ultimately with regret.

Shot in the picturesque and exquisite locations of South Africa, Oil on Water is a rich film-making tapestry, layered and textured with beautiful cinematography, strong emotions, psychological drama and disturbing SFX. It stars Bianca Lishansky and StJohn Alexander.
