European Silk Road, 2022 (7 min)

A dreamy visually and musical trip. ‘European Silk Road’ was made for the digital art project ‘European Silk Road App, which was launched in December 2022, with works by 37 European artists. As the only Dane, film director and artist Helene Moltke-Leth was invited into the project.

‘European Silk Road’ moves from darkness to light and combines dreamy “on the road” filming with momentum, a conscious choice to work with blurs to give the work a silky look, and to express that the beauty, truth and magic that give us well-being, can be found in what is not always visible. The music gives a dimension of longing and hope.
Music by Zoe Alpha, Mikkel Hess (Hess Is More) and Josephine Philip.
