ORFEO ED EURIDICE
Film


8 mm film, based on the Orpheus myth, 1990
director: Fer Smidt
designer: Fer Smidt


This 8 mm film is based on the myth of Orpheus and Euridice, first written by Vergilius. In my version a male person dreams my interpretation of the story. Editing was used to combine life shots and shots within a model. Using music by Schoenberg's 'Verklarte Nacht', I projected the film in the bedroom where the main character in the film was asleep.It was a tribute to Jean Cocteau.
