Storyline

Alexander the Great in contemporary London. He appears by the Shard, perfect symbol for his panoramic domination. Smithfield Meat Market becomes the Macedonian Palace where his father is butchered. In this experimental short the mythical weaves with the modern, as Alexander re-enacts sequences from the crucial night that propelled him to immortality. Structured as a Triptych the viewer is invited to travel through both painting and frame, like a tube travels through tunnels to stations. Poetry, haunting sounds and stunning imagery create an hypnotic experience. The final long shot of the rising sun is a breathtaking metaphor for Alexander venturing forth to conquer the East.
