A lonely, sometimes misty, sometimes sunny mountain region, chants from the church of a dying village, a single man. He restlessly walks through his house, the village, the forest – but doesn’t reveal his secret. Observations from a seemingly insular, rural area in the south of Europe with no less insular people, shaped by their environment. And are the orange trees really blooming outside?

Frederik Lang
