Runtime

A sensory exploration of the forest and the tensions that inhabit it, Osmosis interweaves images of pure chlorophyll and the dense blackness of burnt forests. The dynamics of these cycles of life and death imprinted pictorially on 16mm film are amplified by a soundscape articulating sensations of anxiety and appeasement, connecting human and non human in an organic mesh. After the poetic portrait of a glacier (Resistance, 2017), Osmosis pursues an immersion into natural environments that are given to see as metaphors of ourselves. Unless we are the metaphors.
