Surround

Gorzna Ewa, Miron Katarzyna

Surround is a short film reflecting on the relationship between human and nature and our coexistence with other species. The video is an artistic attempt to challenge the typically anthropocentric relation between human and wildlife by reconstructing more animal-centric storytelling and emphasising the animal presence and point of view. Nature and wildlife are the protagonists of the video, while the human presence is referred only indirectly in the off-screen soundscape.
