About the Movie
'Poustinia' is a documentary short about Gendron Jensen, a man passionately devoted to his artistic calling. He draws detailed, precise images of bones. Though bones traditionally represent sterility and death, Jensen sees them as 'emissaries - portals unto exaltation - bespeaking all of creation'.
This beautiful film shows this great artist as he really is, by a superb filmmaker.
Someone truly unique - hooray!
Every day we have more media from which to choose & yet it seems to always be a whole lot more of the same. Director Berg has found a truly unique story and tells it with a strong point of view. How wonderful to be pulled into a story that actually surprises you. I look forward to Berg's future films. He's certainly "made his bones" with this one!
I saw this perfect film at the Woodstock Film Festival, where it ultimately won Best Documentary Short (no surprise there). So psyched it's now available online!
