1 MIN

 PG 

A surrealist approach to cinematography to explore the human race's ever-present hunger for knowledge and the value placed upon what (you think) you know. The quest to know it all is put in contrast to the state of wonderment we reach in surrendering to the infinite unknown.

Director's Biography

The Samaya Wives come together in life and creation as a multi-disciplinary duo that explores the many colors and tones of what it means to be alive on this earth, revealing the innate one-ness that ultimately links us all. To bring a voice to the voiceless, to shed light in dark spaces, to empower and to inspire, the Samaya Wives strive towards equality, wisdom, compassion and authentic connection.

The fusion of their respective expertise in dance, photography and film enables them to communicate through external imagery the internal world of the human psyche. Using their passion for creating bold, eye catching imagery, they set out to use art as a spotlight on global humanitarian issues, encouraging viewers to expand their hearts and with it their world view and preconceptions.

Recent appreciations include two-time winner of the International 60-second Dance Film Competition (Finland and Denmark), winner of best film in the FAD Film Festival (USA), Portland Dance Film Festival (USA) & Berlin Motion Picture festival, Australian Dance Award for Excellence in Dance on Film and winner of Best Music Film clip in the 2016 NIMA awards.
