Stravinsky Concerto for Two Pianos

A visual interpretation of Stravinsky’s 2-piano concerto written in 1935. Using layers of footage to create all the graphic elements on the screen, the film turns into a rhythmic sketchbook in motion, constantly alternating between the graphic/abstract and the 'real'. The split-screen division in the first movement reflects both the harmony and the contrast encapsulated within the dialogue between the two piano parts.
