“A profound and disturbing short experimental film that guides the viewer through sublime natural imagery with the voice of Mother Earth acting as a guide. This film challenges its very means of communication- the concept of film- and will leave you shaken. There is no substitute for nature, and certainly not a movie”. – Earth Day Film Festival
