“SONG FOR HARON (III)” (00:04:24) by Janja Rakuš, Slovenia, 2023

No living being can cross the Styx, only those who are destined for the Kingdom of the Spirits I will ferry across.

Brief and quick cinematic gaze into the eternal mythology of the Underworld. If the first Song evokes dark waters of river Styx, second illuminates the presence of psychopomp Haron in splendour of Paradise, than the third Song reveals the journey of Haron through otherworldly landscapes into the depth and core of the planet Earth.
