"Sun of Wisdom" is the second film made by "Open Your Eyes & Listen", a collaboration project by María Kjartans and her partner composer / musician Biggi Hilmars. It was filmed in the hills of Sacra-Monte in Granada, Spain where the author and her daughter lived in a cave with travelers, gypsies and cingaros for a few weeks in the summer of 2009.
The film explores the young girls thoughts as she questions, about life and existence. There is no such thing as time and place, "Anywhere is the same as everywhere". Are we all part of the same, are we all one?
