"The Hidden Sea" (2010)
Time does funny things in the desert.....sometimes it reveals an entire ocean, it's frozen tide pools and fossilized sea creatures, below, ebbing for a moment, it's currents. I am always impressed by the notion that I walk on the bed of an ancient ocean.
One of the stories by Ursula K. Leguin I love is "The Masters". In that tale a medieval astronomer, perhaps an astrologer or an alchemist, is driven into hiding underground in mine shafts. There, he discovers "the stars beneath".........the Hidden Sky.
Here's The Hidden Sky: Fibonacci Movie from Cara Reichel on Vimeo, in conjunction with a 2010 play based upon Ursula Leguin's story. It's so beautiful, I felt like looking at it again.
