An abstract visual poetry in which man faces nature, technology and his own identity.

In the center of Romania there is a large copper deposit. The mining here gave birth to an architectural wonder. The sounds of the excavators create a mysterious symphony, while the waste paints the space in subtle nuances of blue. The walls of the quarry capture an enigmatic story of bodies charged with technological emotions, in conflict with space of unwelcoming beauty. Five dancers are united by a common story, an inherited madness that flows unseen around them and that digs deep into their subconscious. 

Sonder had the international premiere in November 2016 at Bestias Danzantes International Dance Film Festival in Chile, winning a special jury prize for best foreign film.
