Understory

by Tess Vonck

As a woman walks in the forest, her presence is witnessed by the elements - creatures and other moving forces with an integrity of purpose in place. This film is a living poem that explores the dance of unraveling and revealing between man and both inner and outer nature, a language only understandable to surrounding ghosts.
