As you walk over the land of barrenness and drought

Film, work in progress.

I am currently developping my next film As you walk over the land of barrenness and drought.
This film is an exploration of the artistry of Sejnane’s ancestral pottery making, which has and is still exclusively feminine, since the second millennium BC. I aim to poetically reconnect with the language of matter and the four elements: earth, water, fire, and air, Focusing on the creation of clay dolls, and aiming to  rise the intensity of artisanal work  into an  experience that connects us with our primal instincts and to ancient times.
