A strange story at the very top of the Caucasian mountains – the apex, pinnacle, vertex.

A family lives in a house that teeters precariously on the very tip of a mountain. The balance of the house is affected not only by the family that lives inside, but also their cow, dog, cat, a passing bird, and a man with a couple of sheep who returns in a car. The slopes of the hill themselves also seem rather slippery at times.

The film was included in the Animation Show of Shows and eventually gathering nearly 70 awards around the film festivals.

Measured MotionEverything flows out and in; everything has its tides; all things rise and fall; the pendulum-swing manifests in everything; the measure of the swing to the right, is the measure of the swing to the left;
rhythm compensates.

His own remarkable still photographs are Goldsworthy’s way of talking about his often ephemeral works made from elements of nature, of fixing them in time. The music was composed and performed by Fred Frith.

A visual record of the sacred movements and dances by Gurdjieff’s devoted pupil Jeanne de Salzmann.

The Gurdjieff movements is a series of sacred dances authored by G. I. Gurdjieff and taught to his students as part of the work of self observation and self study. The student, even from the beginning, through the high degree of sustained attention required to perfect himself in the movements, is using one of the specific means of self-knowledge, and of attaining the cognition and comprehension of reality.

The music for the movements was written by Gurdjieff and Thomas de Hartmann.
