Every so often a project comes along that makes you remember why you fell in love with film as a medium.
UPROOTED by director Johnny Likens is just such a project.
Dialogue is completely absent in this film. Instead, gorgeous visuals are the means by which feelings of deep awe are induced.
As UPROOTED opens, we see a young astronaut deep in contemplation over her life as she prepares to be launched into space.
We are then submerged into a beautiful montage of images representing the astronaut's past, present, and future.
We watch as she roams through lush farmlands bathed in wheat-golden light. Then we observe her sojourns in a vibrant - yet gritty - cityscape.
Finally, we witness the almost overwhelming majesty of the cosmos along with her.
Mr. Likens created the stunning deep space visuals by incorporating images obtained from the Image Science And Analysis Laboratory of NASA.
