Through the singing villages



33 min

A sound recordist’s encounters with different places, people and their lifestyles. On arduous walks to different villages, he turns inward and associates what he sees with his personal memories and different forms of art he admires. While travelling with a film crew, he focuses on recording useful sounds for the project, but also questions and contemplates the subjects he comes across.
