In the desert, a man extracts stones from a mountain and breaks them. His perpetual labour becomes an act of meditation, a demonstration of human dignity in its most austere form. At once poetic and yet purely documentary, this desolate scene points out humanity’s place in the universe.

Screens before Walden.
