The Sky Has Never Been So Close

The Sky Has Never Been So Close (2022) is a film by Geo Barcan.

Being in her grandmother’s garden as a child made Geo realize that she did not identify with her human family, but rather with one formed of insects, flowers, herbs, worms and other non-human beings.

The Sky Has Never Been So Close is a look into the world of Geo Barcan’s childhood, her trauma and her time spent with persons of all sizes and species. She uses fiction as a way of making sense of this world. The film is an adaptation from a collection of autofictional stories where the filmmaker recounts events from the garden of her past. Mothers make love to mites, flowers eat humans and spores take over the house as the viewer enters a magical-realist world.
