THE ACTION

A mysterious woman sits waiting. Machinery grinds into movement. She performs a kind of trick... her long hair seems to have a life of its own. The action moves inexorably forward to the strange rhythm of an accordion playing a slow tango.

"Something Old" is part of "Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed , Something Blue".

ABOUT THE FILM

Filmed at the Asociación Cibeles in the heart of Madrid. The sound of buskers playing accordions could be heard drifting up from the pavement cafés below on a very hot, sticky night. Long hair plays a major role in this piece, as do textures and patterns.

ABOUT THE TEXT

There is no speaking in this film. Just music and the noise of the lift.

DIRECTOR'S NOTE

The piece is a kind of homage to magic tricks and to Walerian Borowicz's short films.
