All we are
All we are- a short documentary film
Teaser of short associative film 'All we are' (3:30min).
Every life form originated from the same cells billions of years ago. First there was one cell that formed colonies, which became group of colonies that evolved into all kinds of species like trees, insects, giraffes and humans. All is connected, moves together and reacts to each other. There is no individual; we are groups of groups that form groups. One cannot be seen without the acknowledgement and existence of the other. As a filmmaker and scientist we have so many questions about what we come from, what it means to exist, how do we form a being and what becomes of us? All these questions will mean a lifelong quest and journey, but it all starts with the fact that we as humans are 99,5% the same, that everything on our planet has originated from the same singular cell. Which means there is no I, but only we and we are all connected.
This short film is a collaborative project between filmmaker Marleine van der Werf & Scientist Julia Van Etten and made in one week within the context of the symbiosis context of the imagine science filmfestival in New York. Where filmmakers and scientists are paired without knowing each other before create a film that merges their practices and research.
