“Body Memory”

Ülo Pikkov (Estonia)

>> Video installation / stop-motion puppet animation

What can an old apple tree tell us? What mysteries are hidden in his roots, gnarled over time? Our body remembers more than we can expect and imagine. “Body Memory” takes as its central concept the idea that our body remembers, not only individual experiences, but also the sorrow and pain of our predecessors. A powerful visualization of subconscious processes and the hidden horror of deportation, the film is inspired by historical events: the Soviet deportations from Estonia in the 1940s.
