    A shiny blue bird in a thorny thicket of dark silver, stone drops falling from a metal cloud, a ghost train loaded with mysterious treasure – Australian artist Helen Britton’s jewelry seems to emerge from some forgotten Wunderkammer. And yet her pieces are modern, avant-garde jewelry, admired and collected around the world.Accompanying the artist on her search for precious and everyday materials and her exploration of nearly forgotten craft techniques, Hunter From Elsewhere – A Journey With Helen Britton shows her encounters with the last remaining keepers of a vanishing knowledge, following her from Idar-Oberstein (Rhineland-Palatinate), via Lauscha (Thuringia), to Newcastle (New South Wales) and Bangkok. Finally, Helen Britton grants the audience a private look inside her Munich workshop: to watch her transforming her trouvailles and travel impressions into unique wearable sculptures, preparing coming exhibitions, and discussing her work with curators. In the course of this journey, the film examines not only the creation process, but also the fascination and attraction that jewelry has always held for us human beings.
