In this series of portraits, people are filmed under water, saying something they would not or could not say otherwise. They may be expressing anger or other emotions, or telling a secret. The characters are shown in close-ups while they stay underwater, making their declaration as long as they can, until the lack of air forces them back to the surface. The facial expressions caused by shouting against the resistance of water mixed with bubbles convey a strong, explosive emotional charge. However, the explosion stays under the surface and water smoothens sharp gestures and muffles sounds. The scream becomes a shrill, indistinct noise, covered by the resonance of bubbles.
