Landscape – Mirror of the Soul
Do we really believe that it is possible to stay healthy in the midst of broken families and a broken world? In the course of the film, Marek Orko Vácha explores the landscape, wandering like a Czech David Atenborough. He sets out at the end of winter/start of spring from the confluence of a river and a sea near a modern hotel. Pilgrim Orko cuts himself a walking staff and heads upstream towards the rising sun. He walks the barely waking land, lantern in hand, like a mighty prince. By the end of the film he reaches the start of all things, in the mountains, in the virgin forest of Boubín, at the river's fountainhead, clear and cleansing of waters, where a small village chapel and a simple wooden cross stand amid overgrown and abandoned trees. The sun sets on the first snowdrops peaking from the mossy banks in promise of the coming spring. The use of 3D photography here is essential to the portrayal of nature and the turning seasons. We want the viewers to experience a photorealistic vision of nature, drawing them inside our filmic landscape.
