"The Landcape Within"  lyrical art documentary by Andrea Capranico (Italy, Philippines),  2015, 94 min.



Eric Nui Cabales, body-painter, costume designer, photographer and conceptual artist struggles to find new directions after the death of his father. With a strong desire to move forward, and with the support of family and a group of friends and artists, Eric finds purpose at the roots of his affections: Kayama, where the river and the sea meet, the landscape of his memories and the inner source of his inspiration.


Directors' Statement

The Landscape Within touches upon the relations between art, memory and nature, trying to put together an intimate and spiritual portrait of a contemporary artist in the rural Philippines. Eric is a body-painter from Negros Occidental, a province of the Visayas archipelago, in the Philippines.His visual works are deeply rooted in his family’s memories and in a patch of land owned by his forefathers, on the shores of Aklan province, in Panay island: Kayama. Kayama is more than just a long stretch of beach with dramatic views on the ocean; Kayama is a place of memories, is a landscape in continuous transformation, a manifestation of the relentless “flowing” of Nature that finds a perfect match in Eric’s emotions, art, and creative process. Kayama is “ever-changing nature” inspiring a transformative and "impermanent" art. Like a river flowing into the ocean, like body-painted words melting into water, memories, thoughts and emotions transform and become part of the largest of the landscapes: the Landscape Within.
