This is the second video from my poetry collection titled Night Court. I filmed the whole thing at Villa Montalvo, a center for the arts in Saratoga, California, in May 2017. I spent about two weeks, on and off, editing it. "Encontrada" means "found" in Spanish.
The video centers around a marble statue of Adam and Eve. I love how the sculptor twines their bodies together, and how Adam's expression seems to betray the moment of passion and downfall. He now understands physical love, and all that goes with it: pain, jealousy, loss. His body language tells us that he's not going back to the Garden of Eden, and just to make sure, the serpent lurks behind the lovers as they perch on their pedestal.
