In this short film, directed by and starring Lily Frame, a young woman dances barefoot through an alley under flickered edits and an insistent poetic voice over. Ms. Frame is using her own body, ostensibly to talk about depression, but I think this film is a lot more than that. The dance and the powerful naivete of the narration conveys an intense need to be seen and heard and felt. Her poetry is barefaced, and young. This film reaches and grasps at maturity. It remains girlish but charming.
In the wrong hands this kind of narrative can go off the rails quickly. Under the careful eye of Ms. Frame it is instead emotionally interesting, insistent, and beautiful.
