Eukaryotic (3:14) a lover communes with their beloved, creating an offering to honor their ever-present and ever-fluctuating bond. The film explores the senses and shows nature as a part of one’s body, featuring a devoted lover connecting and communicating with the land, caressing the roots of mangroves and whispering tenderly to the rocks, while gathering tokens for an offering set adrift in the ocean as an expression of gratitude. The viewer is encouraged to see his/her individual body in relation to and as an integral part of the larger collective body that is Mother Earth. Through this connection, Salcedo hopes to inspire viewers to become equally devoted lovers of nature.
