Susurrus ( ‘whispers, echoes of the past’) is a metaphysical journey to Eastern Europe borderlands seen through the eyes of a young woman. Pristine, ancient forests, pagan sculptures and dense, resonating sounds of forgotten villages echo the vanishing world of deep-rooted beliefs. There, a man is a part of nature and magical acts have causative power. Old rituals are still practiced by local folk healers, old women known as whisperers. Working with human fears and hopes, they oscillate on the border of two spiritual worlds.
