"Both Breath and Clay. Fragments of a Ritual Prayer" is an embodied exploration of the mythical theme of the night-sea-journey.
This experimental poetry film delves into the transcendent poetic rituals interwoven within the intricate tapestry of our chimeric bodies, celebrating rhizomatic existence, and meeting the wound's space as a prayer in a perpetual state of becoming.
By capturing image physicality and texture through the lens of Digital Cameras, MiniDV, and the recording of screens and projected images, the film immerses viewers in a dreamlike sensory journey intertwined with the lyrical and spoken word of poetry.
