German Premiere


For three weeks the directors walked the Himalaya-Plateau Spiti. Their film is a tableau vivant of their way, without any exotic values but traces the banality of the spectacular: plants related to our native weeds are strapped to a cinemateographic bouquet on the Himalaya.

“Flowers and more flowers, some more steps and then again quotations on flowers – and in addition always roughly the same steps, the same quotations?” – L’Arc d’Iris
