Ruku Mojeju (tr:Through Hands of Mine ) revolves around a sensory understanding of monastic life. In a convent on a small island, between Montenegro and Albania, fifteen nuns – mostly young women, one of them blind – live their daily lives in a rhythm of work and prayer, and the endlessly undulating movements of nature. Over a period of nine years, this sensory ethnographical film developed as a result of the filmmaker’s intense involvement in this small community.
