Document 2019 Cemetery

Sun 27 October 2019

Cemetery

Carlos Casas' deeply sensory film Cemetery follows an elephant, a mahout and the poachers in their pursuit as they move toward the mythical place known as the elephant graveyard. As the journey transitions from the jungle through stages of death, images begin to fall away, opening onto a rich sonic landscape.


Ten years in the making, Cemetery weaves together field recordings from around the globe. Finding a striking juncture between nature documentary, experimental film, road movie and soundscape, the film opens up questions about life cycles and memory, colonialism and extinction, conservation and the environment and interspecies relationships.
