Death and the Maiden

Revisiting the theme of Death and the Maiden, this short dance film bases its energy and tempo on the eponymous string quartet by Franz Schubert, combining both the movements of the characters and the editing to modify the pace and energy.
Filmed in the Calvary of Sagunto at sunset, it uses the ancient white walls, the dark paths and cypresses, and the white and black dresses to create an opposition between Death and Life, using black and white photography with a high contrast imagery.
