Living Lightly Trailer (2007)
Trailer for the documentary Living Lightly.
Living Lightly offers a magical glimpse into a world where one 21st century family lives with the land in its seasons. In a corner of New Brunswick, Canada, the craft of scything, is practised as meditation in action. Robin Burke’s poetic film explores a way of relating to and loving the land and the bounty it conveys in return for devotion. Cassis Birgit Staudt’s music works with the dancing rhythms of the scythe. This is a study in how we might heal our relationship with planet Earth.
