A creative documentary by Dimitrie Lurie & Zsuzsanna Váradi-Kalmár
Allegorical creative documentary aimed to exercise a search for answers to life’s unpronounced questions in the labyrinth of a medieval medina.
The milestones of the quest are existential, scientific, religious and artistic expressions. Here colours, sounds, figures and authentic musical threads lead the wanderer. The verbal, as well as the visual and sonic guidance concerns eternal truth-seeking, fear, foreignness, the sacredness of life, the discovery of “other”, the lost of Eden garden, inside and outside, work and worship, ecstasy and pacification.
