MAATI – stories of earth

A documentary film by Sarah Sandring

MAATI is a cinema documentary about the element earth. How does the ground we live on shape us and – in turn – how is it shaped by us? MAATI explores humankind‘s relationship with one of the world‘s most primal elements. It is a visual exploration of a material, its endless manifestations, uses and fragility told through stories of people who live with and are influenced by it in different ways.
