“Fern Silva is a constant flaneur, traveling with his 16mm camera around the world. From the Oregon High Desert to the Hawaian Volcano and from the battlefield in Ukraine to the basketball field of Athens. Through his work one feels the harmony and the spirituality of Earth with constant openminded humanity revealing our world in crisis,” says KINO Athens director Nina Veligradi. “Rock Bottom Riser, the debut feature film of Fern Silva, was the first film ever screened at KINO Athens representing the strong political and aesthetical statement of our mission”.
