"Roots" is a collection of 6 documentaries

Documentary Duration 15:08

Roots: Wombstone

The documentary is best understood as the observations of an unborn or newborn child setting eyes on the world for the first time. Is a mother’s womb the confined space that it appears to be, or is it as infinite as the cosmos itself? Is the bolder on the beach as tall as a mountain, or as tiny as a pebble? The sounds of gently breaking waves or fluttering insect’s wings are telling the story of our roots long before human footprints were first left on Baltic beaches.
