We attune to the Forest’s organic rhythm as moving through her roots and branches. The trees come to subtle motion, their pulse paces and we become capable of leaping the horizon’s frontier. A soul’s journey through the Forest towards the stars.

Mini Landscapes

Clemens Wirth | 2019 | 2 min 37 sec | AT

Mini landscapes strike a balance between the awe we feel before nature and the admiration we feel seeing delicately crafted miniatures.

Sensus - Evelyn Kreinecker


Evelyn Kreinecker | 2019 | 3 min 33 sec | AT

RADAR International Competition

A classic study of a hand, drawn with charcoal on canvas, starts moving. It is a reflection and amazement about what we feel, sense, form, realize and effect and about who we are. A calm and touching film that leaves a lot of space to trace one’s own thoughts, in a certain way archaic but also aesthetic and virtuoso.
