"Take a deep breath in…and out," a soothing female voice says. We see a young woman putting makeup on an old woman's face, a marathon man running, an old woman lying in bed, recreational swimmers, a sewing machine stitching away, a group of elderly people doing gymnastics, a dog running along the soft shoulder, his tongue dangling, and people lying on top of each other on a stretch of grass, laughing with forced laughs. "Beware of your physical body," the voice says. "Become aware of the sensations in your body." Ūkų Ūkai is a meditative film poem full of rhyming images about movement, old age and the human body. From up close, the camera explores the naked physical landscape. By means of conclusion the voice says, "Now you're in harmony with your thoughts."


German subtitles are available only in download format.
