This movie is a deification of the life and the nature which expresses itself in a profusion of rites, trances, and sculptures. Exploiting nature until Fukushima
The Ferryman is a cinematic and choreographic exploration of the animistic roots of rituals, dance and sculpture. Through the journey of a half-deer, half-hunter character, the film is a metaphoric and visceral six-step ascent of a mountain, considered here a place of birth and death.
Filmed in the stunning landscapes of Bali, Japan and Scotland, as well as the Louvre Museum, the ancestral and complex relationship of man and nature is portrayed through a series of striking ceremonies, contemporary dance performances and words, narrated by performance artist Marina Abramovich.
Between documentary and fiction, Gilles Delmas’ fascinating film is choreographed by Damien Jalet and hauntingly scored by composer Ryuichi Sakamoto
Director: Gilles Delmas
