Thousands of thorns arranged into traps in the blistering desert heat? Black rubbish bag roses planted between dunes or half a ton of salt poured into six huge circles? Concerned about the ever-increasing uranium mining in Namibia a local artist sets out to give the Namib Desert a voice: An Infinite Scream. The land art installations of Imke Rust address the worrying destruction of the Namib Desert in exciting and sensible ways. Shot in Namibia and Berlin, the film reflects the often meditative creation processes of her art and introduces us to the personality of this courageous artist working in a rather conservative environment.
