A filmic hymn of praise resounds in a modern concrete sculpture in the Grisons Alps.

In the experimental short doc LOBA LOBA (2020) the singer Corin Curschellas respectfully brings the old mountain tradition of alpine blessing into the present day. Her funnel call resounds in Matias Spesha’s modern concrete sculpture OGNA, which in its rawness fits provocatively into the Grisons landscape. The song resounds as an echo on an alp in Vals, becomes a hymn, a contemporary evocation of nature.

«In Curschellas’ funnel call I sense a strong archaic power and at the same time a current urgency. Especially today, when tens of thousands of young people take to the streets and fight for a resource-saving future, this praise is very topical. It is important to me to locate the call of nature locally and to give it a modern face.

In this respect, my filmic translation is neither an ethnographic documentation nor is it folk kitsch, but an independent audio-visual work, which wants to transfer the urgency of this “natural evocation” to the audience and encourages them to think and participate.»
Anka Schmid (director)
