Desert Sound (2013)

Synopsis :
A film almost without images captures forgotten or mainly unheard sounds inside the atacama desert, the driest region on earth. A place atagnostic to human lives, therefore offering natural darkness, as artificial light-sources are far away, which makes it one of the world’s best spots to observe the universe – and experts do so with gigantic high-tech telescopes they are looking deep into the universe, deep into history … where it becomes clear that everything we did will be erased at one point, it’s just a matter of time…
….listen to the video / composition with headphones or highquality speakers is recommended. Sound can sometimes tell much more than our visual perception . images can be limiting . that’s why this film features only a few .
