A female figure strives to control and understand the outer world. Her contact with the infinite through Nature makers her body unstable – she struggles in her loneliness to define her own shape and to fuse with the space surrounding her.

Una vez me comentaste que mejor mis palabras en Español, así que seguiré con la tónica.
El video tiene imágenes muy bellas, la fotografía es elegante, pero el interes inicial decae, por lo extenso de tiempo, me atrapa esa imagen inicial de bella mujer reflejada y despues desfigurada, integrándose a la naturaleza. Hay momentos de búsqueda visual, esos instantes de movimientos bruscos que la cámara apenas puede reflejar, me recuerdan el vuelo de una paloma evitando ser atrapada.
La intención del video es muy buena, creo que mas corto, ganaba en intensidad y sería mas enigmático, por tanto mas subyugante.
Hay una foto entre tus trabajos, que en su momento comenté, si no me equivoco y por las imágenes del amanecer, fueron hechas en ese momento ¿No?.

Dark. Beautiful. Hypnotic. I had turned off the sound on my speakers earlier - so when I watched the video the first time it was without sound and your imagery is rhythmically effective in the silence. After turning the sound back on - I watched it again. The sound score is quite good and manipulative in a positive way, and yet watching it the first time in 'silence' was an engaging and satisfying experience.

Technically stunning and visually seductive but all a bit moody for me. I think the earlier comparison to Bergman justified but this was much less witty. I suppose whether it works depends on whether or not you buy into the central metaphor - and I didn't. There is so much that is good in this video that I feel perverse saying that I didn't like it - but I didn't. Like watching Swan Lake I grew bored thinking "just has this to do with me?" Maybe I have the soul of a peasant - but a well made made video that failed to connect. Sorry but it left me cold. Intelligent choice of music.

Kika your works brings out sensitivity in a unique manner, especially your editing style is good, dark images yet they are beautiful!

Wow,stunning!

The feeling, the music, the editing the lightning, the mediating of the spirit and of course the photo is all great.

perfectly shot! great cinematography! I am a big fan of dark movies and I am trying to do something similar with my fantôme bruit! Parabéns Kika! Gostei muito!

The dramatic lighting in the first scenes in the woods are reminiscent of Bergman's The Seventh Seal. Taking the figure out of the woodsy environment into blackness emphasizes her loneliness and despair. A sense of melancholy and searching comes through the blue tones, the slow motion, and the repetitive piano. At midpoint, the bright, sharp light illuminates her expression of fear. The restrained color of the sunrise appears to be a symbol of the moment she accepts her oneness with nature - literally, it is dawning upon her. Instead of rapture, she dissolves into the darkness, into the water. I am disturbingly distraught because I am so fascinated, so enchanted.
