We Belong to the Earth


The establishment of the first intentional communities stretches back over two millennia ago, with notable examples such the ancient Greek commune based on vegetarianism and equality of the sexes founded by Pythagoras in the sixth century BCE. Set in the 40-years old Welsh village of Tipi Valley, the film explores quotidian life in such a community, revealing the residents’ reflections about the surrounding world and questioning the community’s future.


Ramona is a multimedia creative working primarily in documentary film, photography and text, currently based in Copenhagen, Denmark. Blending together visual media and anthropological analysis, her practice draws from an intention to explore the socio-cultural complexities of human life. Most of her work to date has focused on community-making, environmentalism and ethical initiatives.
