Pumas in Patagonia
Pumas in Patagonia is meditational film, soothing for the soul and mind. Taking its viewers on an introspective journey of serenity. A deep breath of fresh air in a noisy world. The illusive pumas feature prominently not in the traditional format predator vs prey but in their more common state of relaxation and contemplation, giving viewers the opportunity to connect with this untouched part of the planet through slow motion, time-lapse and aerials. Mountains, animals, pure water, dark skies, sunsets and sunrises are waiting to be enjoyed in this art piece where the protagonist is our loving mother nature.
Empathy is the ability to step outside one's own perspective to identify with the experiences of others. How can art support us in developing this skill? Clyfford Still left his art open to interpretation and believed that his audience's ideas of the work revealed much about the inner-workings of each unique viewer. Art can prompt us to tell stories, to make connections, and to discover new perspectives. Join us on this special tour as we use Still's art to explore the experiences and interpretations of others and together build the skill of empathy.
