Salt, Olive, Stone. Contemplating a rural oasis in Croatia
Conceived as a photographic essay on a rural microcosm in Croatia, this film is a contemplative experience about provincial work.
Through beautifully photographed film frames, we see the manual labor of men and women who take from nature the small, primary pleasures of the human being.
Here, in this natural oasis far from the noise of a populous tourist city, the peasants work in silence in a salt mine, harvest olives and build beautiful walks.
