Director Statement

This music provokes a certain melancholy and simultaneously makes me want to dance freely and spontaneously.

I tried to portray these two features creating, on the one hand, a character that draws attention even though he is "neutral" and almost without expression; his presence forces us to stop to see what will happen, this is enhanced by the chosen and empty locations, together with a diffused light; on the other hand, I searched for a protagonist who likes to dance but is not a professional dancer, in order to be able to direct a character who feels the music and dances in a genuine way, as anyone can do privately.

I sought to make a video that is simple and with a strong aesthetic component, using textures and colours, suppressing perspectives and complex movements.
