Magma is the first instalment of Cycle, a series of experimental shorts that sets out to examine the phenomenon of movement. They were filmed against the wild and rugged landscape of the Faroe Islands, the unpredictable weather conditions of which strongly shape the piece. Thanks to the choreographed movements as well as the costumes, music and terrain, Rannvá Káradóttir and Marianna Mørkøre have created the atmosphere of a surreal and hauntingly beautiful world.
