Our Film “Veins of Life” Wins First Place

Our Film “Veins of Life” wins first place in California Women’s Film Festival.

“Veins of Life” is a poetic adaptation of a passage from Hermann Hesse’s Bäume: Betrachtungen und Gedichte (Trees: Reflections and Poems) that celebrates life and nature. At the center of the story is Sayuri, who yearns to reconnect with her inner self. This longing brings her back to the forest of her childhood memories and dreams.

Directed by Muslima Gulyamova

Editor: Martina Albanelli

Produced by Frederiksen

  15. Dear Henrik,

    I enjoyed your film immensely. Congratulations to the filmmakers!

    I watched it twice. The second time, I was able to spend more time absorbing the words.

    I respect your poet’s love of the natural world, and Hesse’s work, that you and your team brought to life. It spoke to me.

    The shot with the gnats in the dappled light was magic. And the cut to the woman right after; superb.

    Bravo to ElephantTribe!

    Warmest regards,

    Ps. I am doing great! Thanks for checking in.
