  • A Whisper in the Order of Things
    A Whisper in the Order of ThingsA Whisper in the Order of Things (2019) is a homage to nature, and to the delicate. A Finnish trio explore how nature is present within their bodies as they journey through forest and earth. The film portrays how our bodies naturally coexist with the landscapes around us; how the valleys, rivers, mountains and plains of our body are in constant relationship to each other and the places we come from.
