Ridestar

Hannaleena Heiska

A painterly, operatic work about escapism, sublime emotions, and desperate love. Its soundtrack is the aria Ah! Non mi ridestar! from Jules Massenet`s opera Werther. The first scene looks like an empty, austere landscape. Then the camera moves to close-ups of a hairy creature that at first remains unidentified.
