The Sun and The Moon

Alone

A personal interpretation of Beauty and the Beast.

The Sun and the Moon, a film fairy tale, is of two women's terrifying encounter with 'Otherness' in the form of a man, abject and monstrous, and for them to either to witness, accept or partake in his annihilation. All are caught in their own isolation and are fearful of the menace that has to be met. The film, as a personal interpretation of Beauty and the Beast, enciphers concerns, beliefs and desires in seductive images that are themselves a form of camouflage, making it possible to utter harsh truths.
