A serene journey to the deep interior of the Limburg earth, in atmospheric black and white. A cinematographic quest for a beating heart of rock, shot in the Curfsgroeve.
This short, wordless black-and-white film, shot in the Curfsgroeve, proceeds from the serene landscape and the small life to the deep interior of the Limburg earth. Looking for what breathes there in the dark. The veins of the rock and the unexpected light that manages to penetrate the darkness, in a visual trip with a hypnotising soundtrack. A cinematographic tribute to an exceptional place.
