The Hollow Earth film combines research materials from 7 different active mines located in the north, landscape shots and historical, archival footage. It’s edited to emphasize the process of drilling through layers of geo-strata; from aerial perspectives, followed by surface mining and subtarranean depths. The soundtrack is composed by the Tromsø-based group Animals (Simon Daniel Tegnander and Ørjan Amundsen) and includes field recordings and samples that make up an audio-landscape of dream-trance-contemplation and crystals. Shown as part of Artists’ Film International Season 7, organized by Whitechapel Gallery, and also Tromsø International Film Festival, Kaunas International Film Festival, Magneeti Finland, Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, amongst others.
