Ikebana is an experimental documentary that reimagines the art of flower arranging. Connecting different practices and perspectives through cinematic assemblage, the film sees plants as living beings, permeable vehicles that hold everyday memories and poetics. A tranquil, meditative essay that examines plants as a language of expression.
