A one minute trailer for the low budget short experimental film, "Orphine", by Scottish Borders based video-artists, Sarahjane Swan and Roger Simian, aka The Bird And The Monkey. The original "Orphine" was a video-art installation commissioned for the Alchemy Film and Moving Image Festival in Hawick, Scotland, April 2014. The "Orphine" film grew out of the installation and expands on that material in a Condensed Epic Narrative form, which tells of one woman's descent into the Underworld, to confront her sister, Death, and bring back her unborn child. Personal history is filtered through the lens of mythology.
Filmed on a Nikon D3100 DSLR and edited in iMovie.
