Description

Gregory Colbert’s Ashes and Snow 60-minute feature film captures extraordinary moments of contact between people and animals as seen through the lens of the artist’s camera on more than forty expeditions to some of the earth’s most remote places. Written, directed, produced, and filmed by Gregory Colbert, it is a poetic field study that depicts the world not as it is, but as it might be—a world in which the natural and artificial boundaries separating humans from other species do not exist.

Edited by two-time Oscar-winner Pietro Scalia; narrated by actors Laurence Fishburne (English), Enrique Roche (Spanish), and Ken Watanabe (Japanese). Musical collaborators include Michael Brook, David Darling, Heiner Goebbels, Lisa Gerrard, Lukas Foss, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, and Djivan Gasparyan.

Cover from handmade Nepalese paper sealed with natural beeswax; tied with thread stained with hibiscus tea leaves and a Nepalese bead.
