Taking the form of an experimental portrait, “Celestial” explores the poetry of the sky, a space for fascination and contemplation. The sky is examined as a place that is not purely a background, but rather an object to be viewed and a “mental decongestant”. The film mixes interviews with weather experts, scientists and cloud lovers; time-lapse footage, split-screen and visual text; cloud formations and weather monitoring stations; aerial views and people cloud-spotting, which are interwoven with a shifting soundscape to create a dense tapestry that looks at the vast canvas of the sky.
