Octavia E. Butler said, “There’s nothing new under the sun, but there are new suns.” The three-channel movie is a landscape of immersion, where the radical, subversive force of water shapes a wet phenomenology of change. “New Suns” speculates poetically on the celebration of queer survival and ecological regeneration. From the downfall of the monumental that carries Western and colonial mythologies, transformation emerges, and new life may arise. The radical act of sinking as water rises becomes a form of resistance, enabling the re-evaluation of hegemonic grand narratives. If we trust the turbulent waters, new suns may rise, forging a queer future that is both constructed and demolished.
