Songs From The Soil

Phie Ambo, Denmark, 2014

37 min.DK/Documentary

During the last two years I''ve been filming on a biodynamical farm and this material has initially been made into the feature film "Good Things Await"; a story with great sensory depth - but also a story that is told in a linear and traditional fashion. Yet through the process of recording, editing and otherwise creating Good Things Await I always knew, that I also wanted to created an experimental and more fluid piece, consisting only of music and images. I wanted to do this trusting to the fullest that in and of itself it would be interesting and immersive to watch Nature''s processes of transformation.
