Director Statement

'Mountain, Water, Fire' is an improvised collaboration between a film director, choreographer and musician. It is the translation of the core elements of nature that provide life.

We are reversing the visual stimuli that exists in the city life where all you see are man made objects and instead we chose a location where there is only a small reminder of city life due to nature being the dominant feeling within the piece.

The collaboration started with the dancer choreographing and mimicking movements of the chosen elements. Only when the video was cut was the music composed based on her movement and the cinematography.
