De Efthimis Kosemund Sanidis film 2014
Esther is a 40-year-old pregnant woman living in a modern metropolis. She develops psychosomatic symptoms such as rashes and transpiration; she does not know why. The symptoms appear every time she comes into contact with representations of nature. She wants to name her baby Odette, Tchaikovsky’s character from Swan Lake, swan during the day, human at night. What interested me was to explore a fragile and familiar universe, a ‘lake of signs’, familiar and inviting to scratch the surface and sense what lies beneath. The imbalance between nature and civilization, Esther as the manifestation of the fine line between these two sides, a natural body expressing and reacting in various ways, ultra-sensitive in a world incapable of becoming something else, a modern saint, a modern being.
