Watch Locally, Think Globally

The Pond

ABOUT THE FILM

This film presents the unassuming modesty of a watercolor painting in images. Time seems to pass quietly at a slightly decelerated speed and we see carp and dragon flies at one with the pond. Looking at the scene, the word “elegance” will inevitably drift into the mind of the viewer on the gentle, pleasant breeze.
