Documentary: Call for The Songs of The Wind
Institute of Contemporary Arts
Under the Lake, dir. Thanasis Trouboukis, Greece 2022, 17 min.

Building an intimate and powerful portrait of many landscapes, from the mountains of Greece to the canals of the UK, these filmmakers quietly observe their surroundings and ask: do we really belong to our local surroundings when nature ultimately (re)claims that space? 

As a village submerges under the weight of rain and a 200-metre power station is demolished after many decades, nature seems to find a way to show its strength and resilience - yet can also be a neutral ground for holding stories. Reflections on affinity and planting roots accompany our protagonist on what might otherwise be a lonely pilgrimage. All four films invite us to slow down, and observe each landscape in order to reflect within.
