Seven inhabitants of a de facto state on the Black Sea unfurl a web of stories about loss anddisplacement through the re-imaginings of dreams and memories of the 1992-93 war inAbkhazia. To question the unstable distinction between fact and fiction, these re-imaginingsare interwoven with auto-fictional narration and archival materials that have been processedthrough an AI technology. The Black Sea permeating the film’s world acts as a metaphor of both an idyllic holiday destination of utopian happiness; as well as a perilous force, a place ofconspiracy and death. What We Shared employs emotive soundscape and imagery toproduce a sensory reflection on artistic practice as a powerful binding force and an act ofresistance to dominant power structures.
