MOUNTAIN

The debut film MOUNTAIN is an experimental erotic documentary, focusing on the universal philosophy of the Earth which is derived from spirituality and ecology. The film highlights female energy as closely related to Earth (Gaia), personifying the mountain through a woman's sensual voice and expressive figure. A film director and interdisciplinary artist MOON Martina Zelenika considers the film to be an audio-visual poem, seeking to create a blend of traditional filmic story-telling and performance with a palette of digital techniques, merging influences from aspects of European culture with those of Japan. With the film, the author wants to influence the human consciousness to preserve the Earth from another perspective, with empathy and compassion. The movie is dedicated to every mountain.
