Mélisande, 2’50”, 2018

A fashion film for jewelry design studio Elena Tezak, based on Debussy's opera Pelléas et Mélisande. The short film was conceived as a video portrait and modern adaptation of the mysterious character Mélisande, whose fate hinted in the symbolism play by Maurice Maeterlinck, was linked to her lost ring in the water. Elements such as the lake, the well, the lost-in-the-forest, the death of Mélisande and the repetition cycles are reinterpreted both visually and acoustically in an abstract way.
