Hillborgs Aeterna (Baltic Sea Festival)
Aeterna is a globe spanning cinematic odyssey, steeped in the tempo of the contemplative traditions.
Through the eye of the free floating witness, we observe life in work and in leisure, in play and through hardships, from the shanty towns of Cape Town, to the Waura Tribe by the Xangu river, through the mist of the Atlas mountains to the colored night skies of Beijing.
Using a language of compassion and beauty, rather than fear and judgment, the film creates a space for reflection. With an original score by acclaimed composer Anders Hillborg, the film is endorsed by UNESCO Patronage. A work in progress version of the film will be performed live by London Philharmonic Conductor Esa-Pekka Salonen the 23rd of august during the Baltic Sea Festival.
