Statement about the film  'The sweet stench of sulfur' - 2017

On the outskirts of Dead Sea in Israel a recent geological phenomenon is forming called sinkholes which are exponentially ‘swallowing’ man made habitats due to rapid evaporation, climate change and human intervention.  Although extremely dangerous and unpredictable, there is much beauty in these pools of green, orange and blue liquid which resemble Martian landscape and have been a mysterious source for new microbial life in an ecosystem infamously known for its barren characteristics. The voice over is based on an interview conducted with a geologist who was ‘swallowed’ by a sinkhole.
