Kaltes Tal

KALTES TAL experiments with different spaces and the transitions in between them. Aesthetic and documentary forms are merged to take the viewer into a real but mythic world of a limestone factory. The white limestone is processed and returned to the forest in order to protect it from acid rain. The film deals with this circle of resource exploitation and the attempt of reinstating an ecological equilibrium. Explosions of rocks in slow motion, white chalk dust covering everything and the camera floating through the forest create a transcendental world that blurs the dichotomy of nature and human action.
