Encounters between looms
(Sri Lanka, Austria 2014)
The Graz filmmakers Schmid and Aigner accompanied three Austrian fashion designers to Sri Lanka on their search for high-quality fabrics and inspiration. You immerse yourself in a world in which traditional craftsmanship meets sustainable, young design. The harsh climate of the Alpine region and the jungle on the Indian subcontinent have something to do with each other.
