"Ask The Water" is an poetry short film by independent filmmaker Laura Hirch and artist/poet Joanna Hruby. The film addresses the ecological and cultural damaging effects of mass tourism and globalisation on the island of Ibiza.
The poem advises to ‚Ask The Water‘ for solutions regarding this crisis - for the water has stored the memories of long forgotten times when God was worshipped as an Earth Mother and the land was revered as sacred by the Phoenicinas who once resided on the island.
In additional collaboration with multidisciplinary sound artist Daniela La Luz and the Theatre of the Ancients (Ibiza).
