The Earth Sings

  • Slovakia
Audio Tracks 

A cinematic poem with an impressive soundtrack that complements the final sketches of the folk culture of the Slovak nation. With its perfectly constructed dramaturgy, the work is based on the beauty of the natural cycle from the end of winter to the beginning of autumn, symbolized by the sun and the tradition of grape harvests. The aesthetically exceptional visual representation of folklore is complemented by poetic intertitles by the Slovak poet Ján Smrek.
