CODA film opens at the end of November with Gilles Delmas’ latest film The Ferryman, a cinematic and choreographic exploration of the animistic roots of rituals, dance and sculpture and their contemporary relevance. The relationship between man and nature is portrayed through a series of striking ceremonies, narrated by performance artist Marina Abramovic.
