Invisible Landscapes CS

director: Ivo Bystřičan
original title: Neviditelné krajiny CS
country: Czech Republic
year: 2022
running time: 47 min.


This documentary film, which is based on the field-recording research method, gives space to the physical places where important energy, natural, and political processes take place. The director, musicians Václav Havelka and Pan Throrarensen, philosopher Lukáš Likavčan, and field-recordists Sara Pinheiro and Magnús Bergson all ask the question: “What are sounds that we don’t attach any importance to in our everyday lives trying to tell us and how can they predict the sequence of events that affects our lives?” Here, sound becomes a tool that can oftentimes capture geological time better than an image.
“The aim of this Czech-Icelandic art project is to focus primarily on future critical infrastructure and breaking points through sound.” — Ivo Bystřičan
