In harmony

Poland / 2019 / documentary / 14' / Polish Documentary Panorama

The title of this documentary impression by Dorota Bator describes a place in between civilisation and nature. An older couple lives in harmony with nature following its rhythm. Among green trees and singing birds they cultivate the land and keep bees on a bee farm in picturesque surroundings. Hushed narration, devoid of words, makes it possible to observe and eavesdrop on the life of the farm subordinate to the changes in nature. The humming of bees and concerts of birds are replaced by an autumn wind and dripping rain, which then transform into the sound of the fire crackling in the fireplace.
