Our take

Inspired by early adventure films and subverting the tropes of nature docs, artist Carlos Casas takes us on a slow-mo jungle odyssey—perhaps an elephant’s dream? Hypnotic and tactile, Cemetery is a sensory meditation on memory and extinction made of images and sounds we haven’t seen or heard before.
