TANZ DER SINNE
Austria / 2003 / 39'
The film is about the intensive experience of a nature expedition around the world. A journey through different cultures stongly connected with the forces of nature and their phenomena. The trip becomes a “ dance of the senses”, in opposition to the artificial world created by man. Nature draw us into its elements, into its dynamic and creative force. We admire its beauty and its aesthetics. We learn about ancient cultures fighting to preserve the last natural islands before they are lost forever. This makes us reflect on our life and our relationship with nature, mountains and foreign cultures.
