An unsettling road trip through the Vosges mountains in autumn

The artist and filmmaker Simon Ketteniss’s film takes the viewer on a kinetic and unsettling tour of the Vosges mountains in eastern France in autumn. Balanced between an elegiac response to what has gone before and a suggestion of an unknown future, the 300 scenes filmed over five days appear in a seamless rhythm, backed by a soundtrack that’s at once magnificently compelling and deeply eerie.

Director: Simon Ketteniss

The deep roots of writing

Was writing invented for accounting and administration or did it evolve from religious movements, sorcery and dreams?
