SALTO is a shimmering slow-motion 10-min-rollercoaster of frictions between rocks, skin, saltwater, wind, feathers, fur, moss and concrete. A single panning movement of the camera circumscribes the dramatically contrasting landscapes of Madeira Island, Portugal. When a human body emerges from the ground in a single dance move, time is removed for a moment before everything melts back into matter. Letting the voices of non-human people resonate, SALTO silently comments on the capitalization of nature for colonial and touristic exploitation.
