Elusive Beauty

Rental Format(s): Digital File

Elusive Beauty is about the fleeting and ephemeral nature of beauty. The words moving across the screen are like the entrance and exit on a stage while the dancers slowed down movement suggests the changes that take place over time as part of the aging process.

Soundtrack is song "Percanta" by Otros Aires

"This film is part of an Octet of Film Poems inspired by the poetry of my late aunt, Alice Gonçalves Sousa. Written in narrative style, Alice's poetry reflects the values of mid-century America when she came of age, particularly the attitudes toward women. I use the poems as a script and a jumping off point to create something new through the synergy of text, sound and image."

The complete Film Poem Octet is also available to rent as a package with reduced rental price.
