Carlos Casas - Cemetery

Carlos Casas. France, United Kingdom, Poland, Uzbekistan. 2019, 85'

Artist Carlos Casas traces the journey of an elephant and his mahout to a sacred hidden elephant cemetery. As they move toward the mythical place through the jungle, questions opens up about death, reincarnation, immortality, and where Hindu and Buddhist traditions collide. "Cemetery" is a deeply sensory film about memory, colonialism, extinction and the unmapped. A road film guided by a monologue voice over, the amazing sounds of the jungle and a deep research related to the sonic language of the elephants. "Cemetery" is a requiem for the unknown, for the undiscovered, for our Shangri-La.
