MeM#9 —25) Lazarus

MeM#9 —25) Lazarusde Tuixén Benet from Movimiento en Movimiento on Vimeo.

Through a dialogue between movement and landscape, Lazarus reflects on the objectification of the woman body in film. The famous quote by Edgar Allan Poe “the death of a beautiful woman is, unquestionably, the most poetical topic in the world” triggers a succession of falls and recoveries that escape the poetic by trying too hard to find it.
