Ashes and Snow is a poem of spectacular images. It’s a tale, a legend. It’s a movie about the human beings and their being, about the returning to Eden, about the beauty of remembrance. The pictures tell a story about being free. The text behind – tells a poetry.
Ashes and Snow, a film by Gregory Colbert, uses both still and movie cameras to explore extraordinary interactions between humans and animals. The 60-minute feature is a poetic narrative rather than a documentary. It aims to lift the natural and artificial barriers between humans and other species, dissolving the distance that exists between them.
