Vestiges Filmmaker introduction
Vestiges (an archipelago)
Composed as a typology of islands, Vestiges (an archipelago) is a video essay that investigates humans’ insatiable demand for sand, the most extracted natural resource after water. A poetic narrative maze where colonialism, dredging machines or land reclamation projects emerge. A story of how sand is entangled in a global machine that has been named progress, constantly shaping how landscapes, natural resources or geo-political values are being assembled.

Elementa
Ice, fire, earth, air and æther collide in this artistic, environmental and global feature which demands the viewer manifest their individual narrative, visually guided by compelling cinematography from our wildest lands.

Solar Echoes
The sun is reflected in an Andalusian thermo-solar power plant whose architecture reminds us of ancient alchemical engravings, like a sacred temple of the 21st century. From its radiance come the voices of an antimatter physicist and an ecofeminist evoking their reflections on collapse, time and energy.

Elementa

43 minutes | New Zealand | 2020



Deep in Canada’s Great Bear Rainforest lives a rare, unique and seldom seen creature, a black bear with white fur, known in these parts as Moksgm’ol (the ghost bear). According to local mythology, the creator Raven asked the Black Bear to make one-in-ten cubs white, as a reminder of the Great White Time, when the world was covered in ice.


Ice, fire, earth, air and æther collide in this artistic, environmental and global feature which demands the viewer manifest their individual narrative, visually guided by compelling cinematography from our wildest lands. Experience the vast wilderness of the white continent and ancient rainforests to the revered power of the world’s oceans and erupting volcanoes.


Elementa is a black-and-white visual meditation of wilderness and the elements. Award-winning wildlife photographer and filmmaker Richard Sidey returns to the triptych format for a cinematic experience like no other.


Filmed over five years on seven continents, Elementa is Sidey’s second feature collaboration with ambient composer Boreal Taiga, and completes the director’s Speechless trilogy.


Prepare yourself for full immersion.
