Mountains Made of Barking

This short film, originally part of the eponymous performance and referring to elements of Milorad Pavic’s gruesome but poetic love story Petkutin and Kalina, sways between dream and nightmare. Mountains Made of Barking was shot in Morocco, in the birthplace of Saïd Gharbi, the blind dancer who inspired Wim Vandekeybus to make this dreamlike tale.
