Edifice is about relationships built very much like a house. Isolated forms bend, flow and connect to create a unified mass. A structure that shelters and nurtures those within. Directed, shot and edited by Rogerio Silva Choreographed and performed by Carmine De Amicis and Harriet Waghorn Music by Alaskan Tapes "Then Suddenly, Everything Changed" Carmine and Harriet set out to explore a hybrid approach to Latin American dance and Contact Improvisation. The goal was to create devices and qualities to establish a singular body dialogue, starting with the connection principles of both those dances. Together they developed the hybrid partnering language that informed the choreographic process and aimed to explore themes like blurred and permeable boundaries, migration and integration, intuition and growth. As I watched the rehearsals, I was taken with the honesty of the movement and how Carmine and Harriet supported each other equally throughout. There were no gender roles and I liked that they could reverse their roles and everything would still work. I approached the shoot with this in mind and tried to capture the piece in a way that shows both their weaknesses and strengths equally. Follow me on Instagram: @rogeriosilvadir
I STILL BREATHE
Following George Floyd's killing and the global Black Lives Matter movement, British filmmaker Alfred George Bailey set out to document the impact and response within a group of young Londoners in a deeply emotional and personal film. I Still Breathe is a documentary about a group of socially aware young adults who give extraordinary and deeply emotional testimonies of being black, mixed race and white in London, England. They passionately react to the impact of George Floyd's brutal and unnecessary killing which has sent shockwaves globally. The response to this inhumane act has been an awakening in the collective social consciousness, and "Black Lives Matter" has echoed around the world. But what will happen now? Will power and privilege continue to turn a blind eye? Or will the new generation see what the current custodians have achieved for good and ill, and come together to right the wrongs of the past to bring in a new era of hope for the future? “I STILL BREATHE” is a statement of hope for the world because, Sometimes the most profound messages come from the voices that are unheard.

Desire Change is a song and video about having to let go of someone you love in order to fully discover yourself.
