The Wind and The Kite
To deepen this tale of marital strife, directors Robert Machoian and Keely Song subvert the approach of the conventional dance short, choosing at moments to focus on the faces of the dancers and at other times remove them from the frame rather than to keep the camera at a distance as if shooting the whole “stage” as is usually done. The composer’s sweeping orchestral score and the extra-terrestrial seeming landscape only serve to heighten this juxtaposition in this boundary-pushing piece.
