Under­worlds

UK/D/2012/HDV/13min

What happens when we lose somebody? What happens to our mental image of that person? Do we start idealizing them? Or do we suddenly see them as a monster? 'Underworlds' follows a modern-day Orpheus on his search for Eurydice who exists only as a fragment of his memories.

'Underworlds' was created from the video recording of a site-specific dance performance. The performance and the short film were realized as no-budget productions.
