INTRATERRESTRIAL

a fleeting contact

55 min, 2017

TEASER TRAILER

The Shore and the Ocean.

The frozen and the fluid.

The artificial and the genuine. 

Humans and dolphins. Two ways of life. Two mentalities. 

A dialogue about two world-systems.

Is contact possible between them? 

Intraterrestrial – inhabitants of the Earth - not us OR them, but us WITH them.

"...They do not built megacities, do not improve amenities, do not protect property, they are indifferent to technology, business and politics. 

They have no economic reforms, peace-keepers with guns, priests on the payroll, no private possessions, and no immovable property.

They do not make things immovable – for them the idea itself is equivalent to death.

Instead of charity, they have compassion; instead of diplomacy – sincerity; 

instead of museums – live art; instead of power stations - direct contact with energy..."

TEAM

The Dolphin Embassy is a research, information, consultancy and production center that aims to create a new cultural environment conducive to a sustainable and harmonious development of life and consciousness on the Planet.

 

The Embassy’s activities are directly associated with dolphins and whales, who represent the most ancient form of consciousness on Earth, inhabit evidently the larger part of its surface, have abilities, and lead lives that provide lessons of great importance for humans.

 

For this purpose the Embassy carries out non-invasive research into the abilities of free-living dolphins and whales, as well as public experiments and exhibitions aimed at revealing fundamental commonalities of all types of consciousness on the Planet.

Dolphin Embassy Films creates documentaries based on these researches.

FILM CITATIONS

Their home covers three-quarters of the Earth's surface.

We live on islands surrounded by their home.

They are looking after the world's oceans; after the water, without which life is impossible.

MY PILOT,  WHALE

27 min, 2015

TEASER TRAILER

Direct contact between two forms of intelligence is possible.

This contact overtuned not only our usual ideas about dolphins, but also about our ideas about the capabilities of human beings.

 

This film is the first to depict unmediated interaction between man and free-living pilot whale. It is a film that immerses audiences into the world of beings who have lived on our Planet fifty times longer than the humankind. A film that is in itself an experience of direct dialogue with them and the Universe. A film that presents us with an opportunity to adopt a different view of life, consciousness and ourselves.

By the time of release of the film, we have spent about fifteen hundred hours with them. Each time we come back from these journeys unable to speak. The space we have been to transforms our vocabulary that thus far seemed to describe the world quite adequately. The new language soaks in, re-cultivates us. The language is so much more genuine, that we are no longer able to speak and think in terms of the past.

All underwater images in this documentary were shot in the open ocean and feature free-living pilot whales

I think civilization is about the way we interact with the world. Had human beings opted for different principles we would see the world differently and would have a different civilization. 

Where does the contact zone lie? 

There’s no other medium but focused attention. No other reason but Love. There’s nothing else to talk about. That’s all they have here.

It’s about reestablishing the connection. Accepting the gift that is both a treasure and a calling. Everything about their usual selves is also about possibilities open to us.
