What does water symbolize?  Water is the element of change.  In literature and film it often represents transformation-both metaphorical and physical.  Water is both the source of life and a powerful destructive force.  
“Water does not resist.Water flows.When you plunge your hand into it, all you feel is a caress.Water is not a solid wall, it will not stop you.But water always goes where it wants to go,and nothing in the end can stand against it.Water is patient.Dripping water wears away a stone.Remember that, my child.Remember you are half water.If you can’t go through an obstacle, go around it.Water does.” 
-Margaret Atwood

"Her clothes spread wide;
And, mermaid-like, awhile they bore her up:
Which time she chanted snatches of old tunes;
As one incapable of her own distress,
Or like a creature native and indued
Unto that element: but long it could not be
Till that her garments, heavy with their drink,
Pull'd the poor wretch from her melodious lay
To muddy death.”
William Shakespeare
Hamlet, Act IV, Scene VII

You may think you know my story. Many have told it. It has long passed into history, into myth. I have seen more of heaven and hell than most people dream of. But I was always a willful girl and followed my heart and spoke my mind. And it is high time that I told you my story myself.
Ophelia (2018), dir. Claire McCarthy
