Memoirs of a Plague – 2011
‘Creatures of the Flood’- National Geographic Version – 55mins (Music from ‘The Knife that Cuts a Tear’)
“The war against Locusts is as old as human civilisation. It is one of the universal stories we tell of our creation, laying deep within us. But where does the individual fit into this drama? What role does fate play and what role does science?
The film follows the director’s journey as he examines the complexity of the dramatic encounter between man and locust.
Do we live outside or inside nature, who is hunting who?”
