The Dancing Heart

Made in honour of Ailyn Malit

5min / analog 16mm / english / 2019


The Dancing Heart: Welcome

A poetic, flowing Heart dances with ease day and night. A busy, curious Mind sets off on a journey to learn to dance as rhythmically and as elegantly as Heart. But the more desperate he becomes, the harder it gets. Maybe Mind will never encapsulate Heart’s lightness and innate delight. Or maybe music will show Mind the ways of the Heart.
