Natural Attraction

A Film by Marc Zimmermann

Synopsis

NATURAL ATTRACTION shows a natural spectacle, turning a sparse, dry landscape into a fruitful place bearing new life. The interplay between sky and earth reminds of a sensual love act to express the dependency and perfect correlation of both elements.
