Set amid the remote hills of eastern Bosnia, Then Comes
the Evening provides a quiet meditation on the seemingly uncomplicated pastoral lives of two women. Through simple and precise composition with attention to light and texture, the mundane details of their day-to-day existences are rendered
with the tactile richness of an oil painting. Every action and
word is infused with ceremony, ritual, and intangible cultural heritage in this intimate yet epic examination of how nature
and humanity interact.
