Storyline

Ashes and Snow, a film by Gregory Colbert, uses both still and movie cameras to explore extraordinary interactions between humans and animals. The 60-minute feature is a poetic narrative rather than a documentary. It aims to lift the natural and artificial barriers between humans and other species, dissolving the distance that exists between them. Written by Ashes and Snow

Such a wonderful experience
5 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I first experienced ashes and snow in Mexico city at it's traveling home "the nomadic museum" A unique way to see this world through the eye of a lens, I most say that as soon as I started to watch the film I could not get my eyes of it. I love the rhythm of film and find that the footage is totally incredible. Seeing this film has change my life, I can fell that the counteraction between man and animal still exist in such ways that was only imaginable in a very distant past. Now I realize that there are still good little enjoyable things are still around PD: Colbert's film is far too good to be described with simple words.
