Subtitles language: Belarusian


In her five minute film Sasha Huber records a Maori ceremony of purification of a New Zealand glacier from its colonial past. The names of summits, volcanoes and glaciers of Australia and Oceania, given by Europeans in 19th century, are an inseparable part of the Old World culture. The ceremony we’re about to watch is a symbolic demolition of the myth of the white man’s supremacy.
