POETRIES OF REALITY

The Fourfold

by Alisi Telengut, 2020 (Canada, Germany)

Germany | 7 min | Original Version, English Subtitles

A tribute to Mongolian and Siberian animistic beliefs, The Fourfold is a brilliant and magnificent immersion into Indigenous myths surrounding Ovoos, shamanic cairns used for offerings to non-human materialities. The film’s gesture towards our planetary relationship honours Indigenous Mongolian and Siberian perspectives in a vividly stunning breath of singing colours and textures.
