A ski mountain as a stunning ethereal reflection on how we move through nature

Mountain in Shadow is a poetic meditation on the convergence of man and landscape by the Spanish artist and filmmaker Lois Patiño. Shooting from above and using stark, mostly monochromatic hues that almost look like film negatives, Patiño transforms skiers into small, otherworldly figures moving across a mountain’s unchanging immensity. The result is mesmeric – at once uncanny, haunting and sublime.

Director: Lois Patiño
