Visual artist Liesbeth Marit made a haunting film about the relationship between man and nature.
In a suggestive way –by soundscapes, close-ups and long shots, static and exploratory cameras- Marit shows the ambiguous relationship between the world of humans and animals, plants and trees.
At one hand, mankind is created by nature and they are both still inseparable.
But on the other hand, we’ve become alienated from nature, by trying to overpower it and by creating a hierarchy.
We ’ve built houses and made tools, out of stone. With our hands, we ’ve put together motorcycles but forgot to say farewell to our horses.
