ISOLA


' An old stunning abandoned site in front of the sea, in Sardinia, Italy. Fantastic and talented dancer and choreographer Léo Walk. And the strong, melancholical Argentinian song “Alfonsina y el Mar”, by Mercedes Sosa. The combination of all this unifies into this extraordinary short film named ISOLA showing a poetic dancing interpretation directed by Neels Castillon. “Every time I go back to Sardinia to visit my family, I see this abandoned building in front of the sea. I felt it was the perfect place for Léo Walk and his choreographic imagination to perform, surrounded by the ruins, the surreal light of the Costa Verde and the intense voice of Mercedes Sosa. It creates this subtle feeling between vitality and melancholy that I wanted to express in this film. Sit back and enjoy!”  We absolutely did!'  C-HEADS
