Kyma is an abstract short film, filmed with both Super8 and MiniDV camera. The video begins and ends with wave movements in the form of a plow. From a plane, you see the earth from above, dreamy scenery, clouds and mountains on the horizon that are shifting to closeup images of waves, ripples and movements. The video shifts from black and white to color scenes , which then returns to black and white.
Born in 1966, lives and works in Stockholm, Sweden.
