Last times in the Kiewa valley was spent to meet people, share their stories, record their feelings about their relation with their environment. I am always very astonished about how the people I meet during my documentaries give time to share some moments, often very intimate. You have this feeling to live the moment as a gift, precious, windows opening to new personal worlds to discover.
My journey has a funny ending. I used my last time to read myself a story. I was invited to a french lesson. Many people I interviewd were there. I chose a story and read for them in french in order to share new expressions, words.
Another privilege was to assist in the assembling of the ski lift. A very long work requiring patience. But if you wait for a while you can see beautiful metal creatures appearing in mountains.
