“The winter reigns as the Traveler crosses by feet an ancient landscape. In this place there’s also another presence, someone who’s very similar to the Traveler. Does the Traveler realise this figure that cohabits the same space as him? Is the other a guardian angel or a devil?”
In the traveler´s heart, was shot last winter in Lithuania, during an artist residency at the Nida Art Colony. The film was commissioned by the Contemporary Art Centre, Vilnius with support of Goethe Institut Vilnius and took part at the group exhibition Ritual Room in April 2013.
In the traveler´s heart received recently an Honourable Mention of the Jury at Festival de Cinema de Santa Maria da Feira in Portugal and was screened at the Onde section of the Torino Film Festival in Italy.
