The Ferryman is a lush visual and choreographic journey into the animistic roots of ritual, sculpture and performance that explores the complex, symbiotic relationship between mankind and nature. Filmed across the stunning volcanic landscapes of Bali, Japan, Scotland and inside the oldest sections of the Louvre Museum in Paris, The Ferryman tracks the steps of a deer-headed man at the threshold between worlds.
