The Ferryman (Film)
Choreographer Damien Jalet and film director Gilles Delmas collaborate to bring us the moving metaphoric and poetic journey of a hybrid figure – half deer half huntsman (Damien Jalet) up a mountain – symbolising the cyclic nature of birth and dying.
Against the backdrop of the breath-taking landscapes we are lead on a journey, tracing the animalistic roots of ceremony, dance and sculpture. A series of ceremonies disturbs the balance and reveals the complex and primordial relationship between man and nature.
Narrated by the legendary artist Marina Abramovic, alongside the enchanting soundtrack composed by Ryuchi Sakamoto, the boundaries become blurred between dream and reality, between archaic and contemporary, between fiction and documentary.
