The column is an art piece produced on a boat trip between East and West: It is “the story of a piece of marble, the story of a stone, taken off the mountain” he says. This piece of marble is “rolled down, brought onto the boat and then transformed by human actions” he explains. But, he adds, the film is also a story of faces, bodies, human presence and human actions. Nature is detached and transformed, turned into culture.
