AS ABOVE SO BELOW (2019 )

70 min - Feature
Synopsis:

The moon is the quiet centre of this system; it floats over the people as their constant companion and at the same time becomes their property. The same discourses of power, ownership, territory and nationality that determine life on earth also shape this celestial body. Kama fissamaa' kathalika ala al-ard is a quiet, understated essay that weaves together images, texts and sounds into a dense mesh of signs. Humans may be at the centre here, but, as part of the universe, they are also infinitesimally small.
