An improvisational film created in the subconscious which sees in the reverse. What happens on arrival? And is it a return? Artist and butoh dancer Cypress explores the dark matter between death and birth through butoh inspired movement against the backdrop of the Pacific Northwest coast. With an original ambient soundtrack from jdaugh, brad hamers and Big Pauper.
We come from the earth. We drink it. We eat it. We go back in to it.
