I've caught snippets of this extraordinary video called Ashes and Snow since it was uploaded a little over a year ago but have finally had the chance to enjoy it all the way through and my goodness, it is incredible. It explores a way of coexisting with animals that transcends all we know and explores how we feel about our interactions. Definitely take a few minutes to just sit and be wowed.
Gregory Colbert’s Ashes and Snow feature film captures extraordinary moments of contact between people and animals as seen through the lens of the artist’s camera on more than thirty expeditions to some of the earth's most remote places. Written, directed, produced, and filmed by Gregory Colbert, it is a poetic field study that depicts the world not as it is, but as it might be—a world in which the natural and artificial boundaries separating humans from other species do not exist. The viewing experience is one of wonder and contemplation, serenity, and hope.
