Rooted in the Soil: Non Profit Short
An ode to the natural world in this time of ecological crisis.
A female actress discusses the relationship of her body to the two environments she inhabits, and directly the disparity between the two worlds is presented; the natural vs the man made.
Comparisons made between the body and the nurturing natural world question the freedom to be connected to the body and feel truly human.
In a time of climate change denial, the film looks to encourage a deeper connection to nature, and the necessity to preserve our natural world.
The film discusses how our human psychology can be affected by life in an oppressive environment, in contrast to the potential for healing, beauty and freedom with the body in the natural world, which it has never been more vital we protect.
