Mike Marshall’s short film consists of a tracking shot through a forest within the city borders of Mumbai, its smooth mechanical movement contrasting with the complex natural environment it explores. Suspended above the verdant terrain, the camera is seemingly drawn along by an atmospheric soundtrack of precisely orchestrated birdsong, modulating continuously in time with its passage through the trees.
