The characters in Fire Walks With Me have taken on disparate physical forms to move through a vast array of geographical spaces and times in history, and yet they are still connected to each other. They are empathic wanderers, immersed in the nature that surrounds them. he nomad’s instinct to wander also carries with it the urge to live in places far from home and to remain constantly on the move.
Shot in Iceland, Germany, France and Portugal, the film viscerally conveys heat, cold, and storm, but also solitude and hunger.
The work is presented both as a single-channel and a three-channel video.
