The Offering

Posted in , ,

Written/Directed/Produced by Michael Huber

Surrounded by peace, tranquility and the lushness of nature, a young, innocent woman gathers water from the river. She plucks a lotus blossom and tucks it behind her ear. As she passes through the jungle her grace, beauty and purity is evident but the sway of her hips hints at her budding maturity. Irresistibly drawn to the abandoned temple, she hesitates unsure whether she should enter. As though compelled by an unseen force she takes her first tentative steps and the transformation from girl to woman begins. When she steps in front of the statue of the temple god, she feels the goddess within stir and senses the universal power that women possess. The dance begins naïve and stylized, to impress the being within the statue. Her attempt fails to illicit a response. She turns, discouraged but even gods are not immune to a woman’s power.
