A cloud, scattered, the sky, chilly, the earth, endless, the mountains, a small town there, people, people, and the sky again. Solar System can be said as a journal written with a camera. It has no word but images only. So, it’s an experiment and exploration what point a series of fragments of image can continue to, what it means, and how several series can be put together to a whole story. Above all, it’s devoted to the fundamental task of camera. The small and mysterious community called Kolla keeps the nomadic life that they move according to the change of seasons. Quechua Indians in Yunga, a warm area of the Andes, live tranquil but full, solitary but free lives. They conform themselves with the principles of nature. As the autumn rain has come, they start to move. As much beautiful as the traditional ceremony of going into the mountains is, their walks to city are heavy and unwilling. The film forces you to witness everyday life and nature, primitivity and modernity at the same time. They crop fields, butcher cows, and hold a festival. There are lives rather than events and the camera contains these in long breath. Without an event for narrative, these moments are never boring because they are full of beings. The transparent camera which carries ancient landscapes makes you aware of the breath of time.
