The Ferryman is a cinematic and choreographic exploration of the animistic roots of rituals, dance and sculpture. Through the journey of a half-deer, half-hunter character, the film is a metaphoric and visceral six-step ascent of a mountain, considered here a place of birth and death.

Filmed in the stunning landscapes of Bali, Japan and Scotland, as well as the Louvre museum, the ancestral and complex relationship of men and nature is portrayed through a series of striking ceremonies, contemporary dance performances and words, narrated by performance artist Marina Abramović. Between documentary and fiction, Gilles Delmas’ fascinating film is choreographed by Damien Jalet and hauntingly scored by composer Ryuchi Sakamoto.
