Help Fund ‘Immemorial’, A New Film Traversing The Americas Through The Memory Of Its People And Natural Environments05 April, 2016
Immemorial is an eco-cultural art project exploring the bond between human expression and natural world. Combining elements of documentary, narrative and essay film, this audiovisual portrait series investigates the environment of the Americas and the memories of the people living there.
Through travelling in South America and meeting local residents and indigenous communities, the team of Immemorial want to capture the connection and the relationship of the people with their natural environments and landscapes.
The film-maker and video artist Nicholas Sea, one of the main participants in the project, challenges conventional narratives and traditional ways of storytelling and gives an anthropologic approach to this work. His aim is to use his art for eco-cultural education and impact and make it accessible in a cross-cultural context.
Having travelled and explored the magnificent landscapes of Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia along with the stories and the memories of the local communities, the team of Immemorial needs now to travel to the north and explore Central and North America. In order to visit regions with historical, natural and cultural significance, such as Oaxaca, Tikal, Aguateca and New Orleans and complete their project, they are raising money for travel costs, equipment costs, production and post-production expenses.
In exchange for help with the project the team are offering plenty of one-off perks such as Peruvian tela artwork, Wayuu wool bags, limited edition prints and access to the film and it’s film-makers.
