“Without change something sleeps inside us, and seldom awakens. The Sleeper must awaken”.
Filmed in a UNESCO World Heritage Site in Cappadocia, the documentary tells the story of a man and his son trying torevitalise the traditional methods of vine keeping through fertilization of the volcanic ash soil with pigeon guano. A unique relationship between people, pigeons and fairy chimneys a sentient ecology is to be revealed in a magical yet experimental fairy tale.
The film questions what heritage is to a landscape emptied by internal migration and is linked to a broader local community empowerment & storytelling project called "Fairy Dust Cappadocia".
