Constellation is a new short film made by Patrick Doan who was inspired by Canadian pianist Janina Fialkowska. This film was made to encourage us all to take in the beauty and the natural art and music that surrounds us on a daily basis.
“If you absorb beauty from nature, if you absorb beauty from art, if you absorb beauty particularly from music which is the most abstract of all – then it fills your soul and well it counter-balances all the horror that is around.”
